Navigating M&A Rep and Warranty Insurance: Practice Pointers to Increase Deal Value and Minimize Risk


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.

If you work M&A deals, you will not want to miss this 90-minute CLE panel presented by McDermott Will & Emery, Aon Transaction Solutions and Ambridge Partners.

During this complimentary program, our panel of seasoned M&A lawyers and M&A insurance experts will show you how to use rep & warranty insurance in your deals to increase deal value and minimize risk.

Specifically, you’ll learn how to:

  • Increase deal value and minimize risk by addressing rep & warranty insurance in M&A agreements
  • Optimize your rep & warranty insurance by using customizable provisions in your M&A agreement
  • How the rep and warranty insurance works vis-à-vis the M&A indemnity terms, including the interaction between an indemnity deductible in the M&A agreement and the retention amount in the insurance policy
