Claim Trends in Private Company Transactions

We are often asked by M&A professionals to share claims data stemming from completed transactions. Information relative to public company deals, which is more readily available, indicates a significant increase in litigation over the last few years.

The 2013 M&A Post Closing Claims Study by Shareholder Representative Services, LLC also provides valuable insight into private target acquisitions. According to the study, over half (58%) of expired-escrow deals had post-closing claims against the escrow.  Details of the study can be viewed on the attached pdf file or visit
