    Event Synopsis:

    The previous years have seen a significant increase in the use of representations and warranties (R&W) insurance when funding indemnification obligations in M&A transactions. R&W insurance was designed to provide insurance coverage for breaches of representations and warranties by the seller in a purchase agreement, and to potentially mitigate risks, legal traps and pitfalls. This is an alternative form of protection against post-closing indemnification liabilities and other challenges in structuring transactions when closing a deal.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as recent trends and updates in M&A representations and warranties insurance. Speakers will identify common risks and legal pitfalls and provide with practical tips and strategies to avoid such risks. They will also discuss the role of M&A representations and warranties insurance in deal negotiations.

    Key topics include:
    • Representations and Warranties Insurance: An Overview
    • Identifying Common Risks and Pitfalls
    • Benefits, Opportunities and Challenges
    • Current Trends and Updates
    • What Lies Ahead
