Merchant Services Expert in Successor Liability
A merchant services expert in successor liability was needed for contract arbitration. The claimant was a provider of payment processing solutions such as credit and debit cards and electronic check service. The claimant and a bank entered into an exclusive merchant services contract with successor liability. During an acquisition, another bank assumed successor liability for the contract. That bank was subsequently acquired by the defendant. Plaintiff alleged the defendant was also bound by the original contract because of successor liability, but the defendant already had an exclusive contract in place with another merchant services provider.
IMS ExpertServices was asked to find merchant services experts familiar with contracts and successor liability. Experience with mergers and acquisitions in the banking industry and the subsequent disposition of contracts containing successor liability clauses was considered highly desirable.
