Sale and Purchase Agreement advisory

In any M&A transaction the agreed headline price can differ significantly from the final consideration paid or received.

Increasingly, both buyers and sellers are recognising the key roles the specific price adjustment mechanism and the wider Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA) fulfil and the need to preserve value and avoid, or mitigate disputes through the negotiation and execution of these areas. We specialise in advising on these aspects of the transaction.
