Disputes between buyers and sellers may arise in any transaction. Strategic planning to minimize the time and cost implications of this risk is an important aspect of deal negotiations that should not be ignored.
Litigation resulting from a dispute between deal counterparties drains resources, distracts management, and delays value creation. Anticipating and accounting for potential future disputes through strategic dispute resolution provisions minimizes the cost and time required to conclude disputes. Understanding available litigation funding options can reduce the uncertainty of legal costs and related potential adverse cost awards.
