Convergence of Global Sustainability Standards Reinforces Importance of ESG InitiativesRead More
Every year, thousands of conflicts arise between investors, whether an acquirer, seller, minority investor, corporate manager holding equity stakes in private companies, family owned businesses or public companies. Nobody is immune to a potential conflict. Some of these matters may be resolved in a court of law, while most can be resolved in a private and confidential setting.
Conflicts arise for various reasons, not the least of which comes from disagreements or discrepancies regarding a company’s reported financial results; differences in opinion on the valuation of a business or business interest; and the performance requirements regarding agreed upon future payouts or purchase price adjustments.
Whether you are a buyer or a seller, every investor seeks to maximize the value of their investment and will inevitably have opposing interests.
