Dr. Tiago Duarte-Silva was retained by counsel to the respondent in an arbitration related to earnout payments for the acquisition of a packaging manufacturing company. The claimant had alleged that the buyer had understated the earnout amounts by excluding certain adjustments. A review of underlying invoices and economic analyses showed that such adjustments were part of the normal course of business. The dispute settled before the merits hearing.
Dr. Duarte-Silva was assisted by Rahul Chhabra and Josephine Berler.
