In any transaction, the sale and purchase agreement (SPA) represents the outcome of key commercial and pricing negotiations. Buyers and sellers are becoming increasingly sophisticated in seeking to exploit the potential value to be gained through the negotiation and execution of the SPA.
Our dedicated SPA team provides expert support at all stages of a transaction from pre-deal work to post-completion support. In the pre-deal stage, the team assists clients in their negotiations and in the identification and articulation of value issues related to pricing and deal completion mechanics. Post-deal the team assists clients in protecting or generating value through the execution of any SPA completion mechanism. The team combines the skill sets of financial due diligence, forensic accounting and tax advisory.
