Representations & Warranties

Get extra protection whether you're a buyer or a seller.

Overview

Representations and warranties insurance is a type of insurance that guarantees the contractual representations made by buyers and sellers. It is associated and used with corporate mergers and acquisitions, and it provides a viable alternative to escrow funds for buyers, which are traditionally used to satisfy claims associated with representations and warranties in merger or acquisition documents.
