Expert insight and negotiation support can help you optimise value via the price adjustment mechanism and SPA, as well as mitigating and resolving disputes.
In any M&A transaction, the completion mechanism and SPA can mean the agreed headline price will differ significantly from the final consideration paid and received.
Buyers and sellers recognise the key roles the price-adjustment mechanism and the wider SPA fulfil, and the need to determine value and avoid, or mitigate, disputes through negotiation and execution.
If you're a buyer or seller, our expert team will help you navigate these areas to ensure your position is optimised and protected.

We're the only integrated specialist SPA team with a focus on mid-market transactions.
Our team brings their insights and experience of more than 1000 deals to support clients on the full range of issues that can arise during a transaction: from negotiating ‘locked box’ or completion mechanisms and accounting warranties, to finalising completion accounts and earnouts; resolving disputes, and undertaking expert determinations.
Thank you for all your input and insight on the locked box aspects of the deal, where we got a really good result.Head of M&A Large Corporate

We have not used specialist SPA advice before – I think this is something we will now do as a matter of course and earlier in the process. We found it invaluable.Partner Private Equity
