Online CLE Transactional Insurance

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE Transactional Insurance Webinar. With a seller’s market backdrop, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity is expected to be continuously substantial this 2018. However, because many of these M&A transactions are exposed to risks of environmental liabilities, managing M&A-related risks and conducting due diligence in a seller’s market often involve challenges. With this, companies must be strategic in designing and implementing their environmental due diligence efforts, in addition to careful and early consideration of relevant issues.

In this Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide and present an in-depth analysis of the recent trends and developments surrounding Environmental and Transactional Risk Insurance. Speakers will also offer practical risk management strategies, as well as best compliance practices.
