Webcast: Cross-border M&A: Comparing UK and US Private M&A Transactions
1.0 CLE Credit(s): CA – General; NY – Professional Practice / Practice Management
December 14, 2017


Join Davis Polk for a webcast discussion on UK and US private M&A transactions exploring in detail the perception that UK-style deals are more seller friendly and US-style deals are more buyer friendly. 

The discussion will focus on some of the key similarities and differences, as a matter of both law and market practice, between the UK and US approach to areas including:

  • Due diligence

  • Conditionality and deal certainty

  • Pricing mechanisms, including closing accounts and the use of the locked box mechanism

  • Recourse by a buyer against a seller and mitigation of a seller’s liability, including the use or representation and warranty insurance

  • Post-closing covenants
