Drafting and Enforcing Closing Conditions in Unprecedented Times 2020

Product ID: CA3077R5
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

When the buyer gets cold feet

When the coronavirus crisis first hit, a number of high-profile mergers were stalled and suits were filed to terminate deals.1 As businesses continue to grapple with COVID-19 uncertainties, more litigation is likely as acquisitions lose value and buyers desire to quash pending or closed deals.

Drafting and Enforcing Closing Conditions in Unprecedented Times will examine litigation coming out of the pandemic to determine how an extraordinary event could provide a buyer with a path to walk away. With these considerations in mind, you’ll leave with the ability to draft stronger closing clauses and pre-closing covenants for ordinary course of business.
