Joe Marrow – Escrow: Common Issues in M&A Transactions


In this week’s video, M&A Attorney Joe Marrow covers escrow (or a hold back) which is common in most merger and acquisition transactions. Essentially, the buyer requires the seller to hold back, or set aside, a certain amount of purchase price funds to satisfy any post-closing claims.
