We also offer suggestions – based upon experience defending law firms against malpractice and other claims after investments have gone bad – for reducing risks to law firms representing SPAC sponsors. Whether firms represent SPACs or other investment sponsors, these suggestions may make claims less likely. They also may reduce the disruption, expense, and embarrassment if claims arise.  Click here to read more.
