This CLE webinar will provide deal counsel with an update on the latest trends in the use of M&A representations and warranties insurance coverage and situations in which it is appropriate to use the coverage to mitigate risk and complete transactions. The panel will discuss the benefits and traps associated with the insurance and critical considerations when negotiating coverage and exclusions.

Description

Reps and warranties insurance is a mainstay in M&A transactions. For buyers and sellers, the insurance is an alternative form of protection in structuring transactions and can be used to streamline negotiations between buyers and sellers.

Sellers use reps and warranties insurance to minimize exposure to post-closing indemnification liabilities, and buyers use it strategically in a competitive process. Both parties can use the insurance to resolve issues when negotiations reach an impasse.

Deal counsel must be aware that reps and warranties insurance is best suited to certain types of deals and of potential issues that can arise in structuring and negotiating coverage and exclusions.

Listen as our authoritative panel of deal attorneys reviews the ways to use M&A reps and warranties insurance in deal negotiations, the benefits and pitfalls associated with the insurance, and factors to take into account when negotiating coverage and exclusions.
