San Francisco Partner Meryl Macklin and Kansas City Partner Kent Wittrock will host a webinar April 25 on pre-closing disputes.

The Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner team will discuss:

  • The types of disputes that could arise post-signing and pre-closing.
  • Material adverse effect (MAE) - does it ever exist and if so, what are the consequences?
  • Failure of pre-closing conditions.
  • Perspectives on handling disputes from a corporate lawyer and litigator.

Macklin is a trial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience trying and resolving complex business disputes. She has served as lead trial counsel for clients ranging from major corporations to small startups in dozens of high-exposure cases in state and federal courts around the country. Her trial experience has enabled her to develop targeted litigation strategies even when handling cases likely to settle, avoiding unnecessary and costly motion and discovery practice where possible.

Wittrock has spent more than 12 years partnering with his clients on their most strategic matters, having closed well over $1 billion of middle-market merger and acquisition transactions. Clients have recognized Wittrock for his quality legal advice, industry knowledge, strategic thinking, responsiveness, collaboration, tailored fee structures, use of technology, loyalty and ethics. Today, he serves as lead deal counsel closing transactions in a wide range of industries including agribusiness and food, manufacturing, distribution, business services and health care, and regularly acts as outside general counsel to mid-sized companies on contractual and general business matters.
