M&A in Europe: Impact of COVID-19

April 7, 2020

Using US practice as a benchmark, this webinar will discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on deals in Europe, concentrating on specifics such as

  • Deal flow: today, tomorrow and upon return to “normal”
  • Getting to signing and from signing to closing (including impact of MAC clauses and rules on force majeure)
  • Deal economics – pricing, adjustments and allocation of risks
  • Buyer’s protections: due diligence, reps/warranties, indemnification
  • Rep & warranty insurance
  • Deal mechanics

for deals in place or pending closing, as well as the new negotiating environment for current and future deals.
