Insurance in M&A Transactions 2022

A suitable tool for facilitating M&A transactions in difficult times?

Even prior to the Corona Pandemic outbreak, experts anticipated an upcoming downturn in the European M&A market and an increasing number of insolvency proceedings  due  to  the  general  economic  development. Michael Drill, CEO of Lincoln International AG, indicated  in  the  MuMAC Special  2019 already, that  „managers and investors are starting to become cautious when contemplating acquisitions and are aware of  the risks  associated with  the high  valuations  that  sellers are still expecting for their businesses.” These trends have been fueled by the Corona caused shut-down in Europe and Rest of World.

In light of recent political, economic as well as technological trends, we offer European M&A market participants guidance with multitude  of  articles and services on M&A at one place ( The articles and topics cover current market and legal developments in cross-border M&A with focus on Europe. The content provided can be deepened in topic-specific webinars on the M&A REVIEW LIVE platform. With this service, we cover a gap in the M&A market that has been identified by many market participants in the past looking for independent guidance. 

“Insurance in M&A transactions“ was carefully selected. Given the growing uncertainty in the markets, the importance of adequate and tailormade insurance solutions as M&A deal facilitator  has  significantly  increased. In  most  European countries e.g. W&I insurance appears these days to be almost a standard instrument in mid and large cap transactions, other risk transfer solutions are also becoming more popular.  

For this reason, we believe it is of utmost importance for all M&A professionals to get an overview about the current market developments, existing instruments and the latest trends in transactional risk insurance written from various perspectives.

Insurance in M&A Transactions - Europe 2022

LIVE-EVENT on June 23rd from 3 pm to 8 pm (CEST)

The M&A REVIEW has been planning a European event on "Insurance in M&A Transactions" since 2020. Ideally, the event should take place in European cities on a rotating basis. In 2020 and 2021, the event was not yet held in person due to the covid pandemic.

Paris was originally planned for this year, but due to further challenges, the M&A REVIEW and its partners have now decided to have the event start in Munich in the summer.

On 23 June, the time has come! 50 M&A insurance experts will meet that afternoon to discuss the latest developments in markets, claims, products and trends in the M&A insurance sector. Afterwards - latest by mid-July -, we will publish a new issue of "Insurance in M&A transactions".

Look forward to the new issue with us!

We also want to thank our partners and sponsors from insurers, brokers and law firms, namely AIG, Clyde & Co.HowdenLatham & Watkins, Liberty Global Transaction Solutions, Marsh, Oppenhoff, PwC, Tokio Marine HCC, Vale and Willkie Farr Gallagher that supported us in joining forces for this unique project.
