Any prudent buyer should take care in effecting proper due diligence prior to a purchase, and warranties/indemnities are a crucial element of any Share or Asset Purchase Agreement. In this joint webinar from our Corporate and Litigation & Dispute Resolution teams, we explore the importance of these aspects of a share or asset sale from the perspectives of a seller and buyer, and what happens when they go wrong.
- Importance of due diligence and disclosures
- Purpose of warranties/indemnities
- Overview of claims for breaches of warranty
We will also be joined by Navima who will provide a short description of their platform purpose built for M&A transactions.
