Jacobs Published in ABA Newsletter

August 17, 2012 // Franchising.com // Mark R. Jacobs, partner in the Litigation Practice Group in Taft’s Cleveland office, is a published author of an article recently released in the American Bar Association’s Commercial & Business Litigation Newsletter. Jacob’s article is titled, “Using Employees Retained after an Acquisition in Litigation.”

A brief summary of the article follows below

Retained employees might be the most valuable source of information in litigation against the seller of a business, but their involvement presents many challenges that are not found in other circumstances. Meeting those challenges requires a thorough understanding of the underlying acquisition transaction beyond the discrete legal issues that trigger the dispute between the buyer and seller. Early communication with the buyer about its expectation and review of all relevant transaction documents are critical to foreseeing and effectively addressing those unique problems.

Jacobs is co-chair of the ABA Private Equity Litigation sub-committee.To read the article in its entirety, go to: http://apps.americanbar.org/litigation/committees/commercial/articles/summer2012-0812-employees-retained-acquisition-litigation.html
