Transactional risk insurance products, including representations and warranties insurance (RWI) policies, have become commonplace in M&A transactions. With transaction volume increasing, RWI policies can provide both buyers and sellers a tool to mitigate and manage risks associated with transactions in a competitive marketplace, where agility and speed are at a premium.

Our team of practicing deal lawyers brings extensive and current deal experience to the underwriting process, including assisting insurers with due diligence, identifying key transaction risks, and preparing insurance policies. We also work with insurers on contingent liabilities, including bespoke tax, litigation, and Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan insurance policies.
