Post-Closing Disputes


We are often retained in connection with post-closing disputes arising from corporate transactions.  These litigations and arbitrations can involve a wide variety of issues, including the alleged breaches of representations and warranties, the adequacy of accounting disclosures, disputed earn-out calculations, and post-transaction employment agreements.  We have been retained as expert witnesses on behalf of both buyers and sellers.  When evaluating damages in these matters, we draw on our expertise to analyze the connection between the alleged actions and the aspects of the transaction or business that drive value.
