The use of representations and warranties insurance has become a fixture in competitive private-company merger and acquisition transactions. Yet there are no established best practices for how to integrate rep & warranty insurance into the terms of the M&A agreement. Moreover, it is critical to understand the key terms in your rep and warranty policy and how to best negotiate such terms.
