"M&A Reps and Warranties Breach Claims: Strategies for Pursuing or Defending Recovery,” Strafford

Jenner & Block Partners Rachel S. Morse and Jason D. Osborn and Associate Brendan A. Donahue were panelists on a CLE webinar that examined mergers and acquisitions.  The panelists explored the types of breach claims that arise most frequently in the aftermath of M&A transactions, shared practical tips to help buyers and sellers negotiate and draft stronger deal documents, and discussed litigation strategies that will prove useful to parties who find themselves entangled in R&W breach disputes. They also addressed the pros and cons of representation and warranty insurance, which can shift the risk of reps and warranties breaches to a third party.  Their presentation was followed by a question-and-answer session.  Sponsored by Strafford, the webinar was held on April 14, 2016.
