Insurance due diligence

We assist clients of all aspects of insurance due diligence in connection with M&As and other corporate transactions.

We review insurance programmes in order to advise clients on the scope of coverage in relation to the target company’s risk exposure and in relation to regulatory requirements and mandatory insurance coverage. We identify and describe uninsured risks and assist with all issues of warranty and indemnity insurance.

In many transactions the risk will be transferred to other insurance coverage, and accordingly other principles of coverage may apply (claims made, occurrence etc.). We assist clients to ensure that all risks remain properly covered in such processes.

We have considerable experience in reviewing contract clauses and assessing liability in relation to insurance cover.
