Understanding Representations and Insurance in M&A
Although representations and warranties insurance (RWI) has been available in the marketplace for several years, this specialty product has not always been fully understood or utilized. More recently, as the product has improved and awareness has grown, the use of representations and warranties insurance has increasingly become an important tool to bridge negotiation gaps and close deals that otherwise might not get done.
In this whitepaper, senior M&A executive Javier Enrile lends his unique expertise and dives into how representations and warranties insurance can play an integral part of negotiating transactions, winning bids, and finding a means of closing deals in today’s challenging M&A environment.

- How is the coverage typically priced?
