Regulated industries are exposed to risks arising from both government decisions concerning the rights of investors and regulatory decisions about the terms and conditions of the services that are sold, which frequently result in disputes involving investors, regulated firms and competition and regulatory authorities.
BRG professionals have extensive experience in disputes and competition and regulatory matters. They understand, in detail, how regulated markets work and how complex issues and arguments can be presented as part of international arbitration or domestic disputes proceedings, including quantification of potential damages from alleged or proven competition infringements.
M&A and Private Equity Disputes
BRG professionals have a deep and up-to-date understanding of transactions and the accounting and financial aspects of closing mechanisms. That knowledge is critical to identifying key issues in disputes and factoring them into the quantification of damages or investigations of fraud. Our teams work on the quantification of damages and forensic accounting matters in post-M&A disputes, including matters related to closing accounts, breach of warranty, fraud and earn-out disputes, alongside cross-border M&A and leveraged buyout transactions that result in international arbitration.
