M&A transactions, which typically involve share purchase agreements, asset purchase agreements, shareholder agreements and joint venture arrangements, are a huge area of commercial activity, giving rise to an expanding number of disputes. In this chapter, John Leadley, a Dispute Resolution Partner based in London, discusses certain key procedural and tactical issues that can arise in M&A-related arbitrations, including requirements for notification of, and financial restrictions on, claims, and issues that arise once an arbitration commences, such as the applicable law, selection of the tribunal and disclosure.

This chapter has been included in the second edition of “A Practical Global Guide on Arbitration of M&A Transactions” published by Globe Law and Business and co-edited by Edward Poulton, Disputes Partner and member of the Firm’s Global International Arbitration steering committee. Many of the chapters in the guide have also been written by lawyers at Baker McKenzie.
