Representation and warranties (R&W) insurance policies, a form of transactional liability insurance coverage traditionally covers breach of contract claims in mergers and acquisitions.

This includes understanding the types of available coverage, pitfalls to avoid in purchasing the insurance, and top claims issues, including valuation of loss, the claim investigation process, and litigation essentials, in the event that a coverage dispute does develop.
