The merger and acquisition (M&A) transaction process is getting increasingly complex due to the many factors which include deal parties’ conflicting interests. As a result, investors and private equity companies worldwide are now turning to transactional risk insurance to reduce the risks brought by the current M&A landscape.
While transactional risk insurance provides numerous benefits for deal parties, it doesn’t come without traps. Deal lawyers and other professionals should be aware of the potential issues that may arise in negotiating and structuring coverage and exclusions. This is to ensure that benefits are maximized, and pitfalls are mitigated.
This course offers an overview of the latest trends and issues in transactional risk insurance. A panel of thought leaders and practitioners brought together by The Knowledge Group will help professionals better understand how to apply this business trend to their company and/or clients. They will also present best practices in negotiating coverage and exclusions.
Key topics include:
- Common Environmental Transactional Concerns
- Environmental Insurance in M&A
- Reps and Warranties Insurance (RWI) and Environmental Insurance
- Key Considerations
- Best Practices in Negotiating Coverage and Exclusions
