Goodmans Presents: Representations and Warranties Insurance – Getting the Deal Done
8:00 – 8:30 am: Breakfast & Networking
8:30 – 9:30 am: Panel Discussion
The difficult issue of risk allocation on M&A deals is not new. Although representations and warranties insurance has been available for some time, we have seen an increase in the use of this product in recent years in the U.S. and now in Canada. We will explore the ins-and-outs of this specialized product and how it can be a useful tool in winning bids and closing deals in today’s M&A landscape.
Our panel will discuss:
- What is R&W insurance?
- When is it useful in M&A transactions?
- What are the key considerations in negotiating the terms of the policy?
- How is it used in other jurisdictions and how may those practices influence the Canadian market?
