Join Davis Polk for a webinar 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
