About This Course
Clients depend on their lawyers for creative solutions to risks they face in their day-to-day business, and to resolve roadblocks that prevent important transactions from closing. In this CLE course, Kenneth R. Pierce discusses the use of specialty insurance products to indemnify clients for potential tax liability, to facilitate the financing of alternative assets, and as a form of balance sheet capital for certain regulated companies.
“Reps and warranties” insurance is now a standard tool to facilitate mergers and acquisitions. In this course, Mr. Pierce goes “beyond reps,” providing case studies and transaction diagrams to illustrate how insurance is being used in novel ways for broader corporate finance purposes. It is critical for lawyers to be aware of the existence of these insurance products and to be equipped to structure and negotiate the terms of coverage which are necessary to achieve their clients’ objectives.
