MAE Clauses

Troutman Sanders and Pepper Hamilton are producing a series of podcasts to discuss litigation topics that have been brought to the forefront by the COVID-19 pandemic and how businesses might be able to prepare and respond.

In this episode, Troutman associate Sean Ehni leads a discussion on Material Adverse Effect (MAE) clauses. Sean is joined by Pepper partners Matt Adler and Joanna Cline, and Troutman partners John Bradley and Coby Beck. Topics discussed include how they are drafted and negotiated, and whether COVID-19 could qualify as an MAE and be used as an escape hatch to contractual performance. They also discuss how MAE clauses are drafted and negotiated, how MAEs have been interpreted by courts, the litigation related to them, and dig into some other ways COVID-19 has affected the negotiation and execution of M&A transactions.
