1h 2m

Created on May 25, 2017



Representations and warranties insurance has become increasingly commonplace in mergers and acquisitions, and financial and strategic buyers increasingly need to understand the product and its strategic uses and pitfalls. To effectively advise clients and integrate the product with the underlying acquisition agreement and manage any claims process, one must understand (1) the market terms and trends and (2) the mechanics of representations and warranties insurance policies.   

This seminar is directed to both new and experienced practitioners. Dechert LLP's Jonathan Kim and Jonathan Stott have significant experience negotiating and implementing, and advising financial and strategic buyers with respect to, representations and warranties insurance policies.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Identify the context in which reps and warranties insurance is an appropriate product to mitigate deal risk and distinguish a bid
  2. Understand the mechanics of reps and warranties insurance policies and the underwriting and claims processes
  3. Review the trends in the reps and warranties insurance market
