Program Materials

This CLE webinar will guide M&A counsel concerning key private equity M&A transaction deal terms such as rollover equity; bolt-on, tuck-in and platform acquisitions; earnouts; seller paper; reverse break fees; and representation and warranty insurance.


While acquisitions of companies by private equity sponsors share many characteristics with strategic M&A transactions, in which the buyer is an operating company, there are certain deal terms that are unique to, or are far more common in, private equity M&A transactions. In this webinar, our panel of experienced private equity M&A practitioners will discuss recent developments in private equity M&A deal terms, including current market provisions and evolving trends.

Counsel advising buyers and sellers in private equity M&A transactions must be knowledgeable about these developments to be able to effectively advise their clients, determine the deal terms most suitable for their transactions and negotiate those tailored deal terms in the transaction documents for their deals.

Listen as our panel of M&A practitioners reviews the latest trends in M&A deal terms where the buyer or seller is a private equity firm or controlled by a private equity firm. The panel will discuss best practices for negotiating rollover equity; bolt-on, tuck-in and platform acquisitions; earnouts; seller paper; reverse break fees; and representation and warranty insurance in private equity M&A deals.
