Interesting experience with the seller of a business defaulting on their post-close deal covenants. The individual failed to deliver physical property in a condition as defined in the purchase agreement. Given the nature of the transaction, there was a multi-stage feature that was required to finance and ultimately close the deal.

We find ourselves in a precarious position where we own and operate the assets entirely, yet the seller has a substantial obligation to us and will not assign an agreement to buyer as agreed to. First time experience this type of behavior. Outside of litigation, what tools have people used to get delinquent and non-cooperative person to behave rationally?
