M & A deals: guaranteed success or risk factor?

The M & A market is booming: in a constantly changing market environment, transactions are the key to the success and future viability of companies – but they also come with many risks. With the right cover, buyers and sellers can protect themselves and guide the transaction to the desired successful outcome.

M & A transactions pose a challenge to everyone involved. Negotiations concerning guarantee and liability indemnities often test one’s patience, and post-transaction disputes are becoming ever more common. As a result, the seller is forced to pay back part of the money received, while the buyer has to deal with costly escrow solutions. Identified but uncertain risks with high financial implications and legal defects in properties or portfolios can also become deal-breakers in transactions.

Whether warranty and indemnity, contingent risk or title insurance, our experts get your company tailored cover in just a few days and help dissipate the tension between the buyer and seller.
