M&A Agreements: Limitations on Contractual and Extra-Contractual Liabilities

Presented by Strafford Publications, Inc.

Effective limitation of liability clauses in M&A agreements thwart dissatisfied parties who may attempt to evade the contractual limits. Such parties may assert allegations of fraud or misrepresentation and/or claim inaccuracies of pre-contractual representations and contractual warranties.

Deal counsel must craft contract language to maximize the likelihood of enforcement of the exclusive remedy provisions in the contract, minimizing risk to the seller of contractual and extra-contractual post-closing liability in M&As.

Listen as our authoritative panel of M&A attorneys prepares counsel to craft contracts that limit contractual and extra-contractual liabilities, focusing on sources of extra-contractual liabilities, ways to protect parties through auction and negotiating processes, and exclusive remedy and extra-contractual representation waiver provisions.

Key topics include:

  • What are best practice strategies for limiting contractual and extra-contractual liabilities when drafting M&A agreements?
  • How have the courts analyzed exclusive remedy and extra-contractual representation and waiver provisions in M&A contracts?
  • How can parties achieve protection from extra-contractual liabilities during the negotiation process?
