Takeover disputes

Corporate takeovers regularly lead to disputes about, for example, broken off negotiations, alleged breaches of warranties and representations, differing interpretations of contractual provisions and price adjustments based on the adoption of completion balance sheets.

Our litigation lawyers regularly advise companies, private equity investors and financial institutions in M&A disputes, both before and after the closing of the deal.
