Our Role Is To Make Your Deal Happen Now – And To Protect Your Interests In The Future

Warranty and indemnity insurance benefits both sellers and buyers in corporate transactions. A policy indemnifies a party for financial losses that could arise out of a breach of warranty or indemnity in the purchase agreement. Sellers use it to limit their ongoing liabilities and prevent sale proceeds being held up in escrow, allowing them to exit deals cleanly. Buyers use it to make their bids more attractive to sellers and to protect the value of their investment once deals are done.

We work for buyers and sellers in corporate transactions, as well as for the firms that advise them. Our job is to make sure the parties in a transaction get the insurance coverage they need, first to make their deal happen and then to protect their interests.

We can put together back-to-back cover for warranty liabilities given in the purchase agreement transferring the risks to the insurer. The insurer will either cover the buyer (a buyer-side policy) or agree to indemnify the seller (a seller-side policy). Our team also structure insurance solutions to cover known risks identified in due diligence including tax, legal and pension contingencies.
