11th IBA European Corporate and Private M&A Conference
2 Feb - 3 Feb 2023
Between conference, board and court rooms: pre-closing deal renegotiations and litigation
Friday 3 February (0915 - 1030)
It has been estimated that up to one third of all private deals give rise to a formal dispute. This number would be even higher, if we also included the controversies that arise, and are settled, between signing and closing of a deal. M&A practitioners need to be prepared to navigate these challenges, pushing them out of their natural habitat of conference rooms and board rooms towards the court room. This session will focus on the tools that lawyers can apply in helping clients avoid, navigate and resolve pre-closing disputes.
