Representation & Warranties Insurance Claims: What’s New and What Lies Ahead in 2019
The use of representations and warranties (R&W) insurance in M&A transactions has increased dramatically in the recent years. In 2017 for instance, over 2,000 insurance policies have been placed in the U.S., putting R&W in a top spot, and making it one of the most vital elements sellers and buyers use to ensure a secured deal.
In light of this upward trend, it is important for concerned practitioners to always be in constant check of key updates and emerging issues in R&W insurance. Properly navigating these developments can give buyers and sellers more efficient and trustworthy deal results.
Join a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of R&W insurance. Speakers will provide an in-depth discussion of the important claims, coverage and policy updates involving R&W-insured M&A transactions. They will also offer practical strategies to navigate emerging developments and maximize the efficacy of this insurance.
