Insurance in M&A Transactions - Europe 2024

LIVE-EVENT on June 13th from 3 pm to 8.30 pm (CEST)

The time has finally come! In June 2024, the event on "Insurance in M&A Transactions" will take place in Paris for the first time.

In today's world, geopolitical and economic risks are of varying degrees. Different risk transfer solutions have established themselves on the market to counter these in M&A transaction practice. One solution that has become established in many European countries is W&I insurance.

To keep abreast of the latest developments and trends in this area, COMBUYN, the joint European publication created by FUSIONS & ACQUISITIONS MAGAZINE and M&A REVIEW, plans to bring first time together the industry leaders and experts in Paris at the fabulous Shangri-La Hotel to discuss these topics.

Afterwards, we will report on the event in the media and present the main trends and developments in the relevant insurance markets in a magazine.

The event is primarily aimed at corporates, PEs and transaction lawyers working in this field.

You can look forward to meeting the experts with us!


Yours sincerely
the organisers
