M&A Transactions: Avoiding Unexpected (& Undesirable) Insurance Gaps
– by Randi Val Morrison
This recent Metropolitan Counsel article does a fine job of explaining some of the principle insurance issues arising out of M&A transactions – specifically, the effects of a transaction on the selling company’s insurance program and how to bridge the resulting insurance gaps. Insurance implications and considerations are addressed in the context of a range of potential M&A scenarios, including a sale of a substantial portion of assets or acquisition of stock by another company.
