Nater Dallafior successfully assists a real estate investment firm in a post-signing dispute

An investment firm with focus on real estate investments signed multiple purchase agreements for the acquisition of several properties located in Switzerland. After the transaction was signed, the buyers learned that the sellers had failed to disclose relevant information which had a considerable impact on the calculation of the purchase price.

Shortly before the closing date, Nater Dallafior successfully applied with the Commercial Court for ex parte interim measures. The court granted all relief sought: it released the buyers from their obligation to close the transaction, it froze the deposit paid by the buyers to the escrow agent and it prohibited the sellers to dispose of the properties.

Eventually, the dispute was settled by the sellers agreeing on a considerable reduction of the purchase price. The Nater Dallafior team included Roberto Dallafior and Zoe Honegger.
