Lyin', Cheatin' and M&A Stealin': Negotiating the Fraud Exception

October 13, 2011

There is an art to any deal negotiation—and negotiating the fraud exception is no exception. Could three simple words, "except for fraud," mean the difference between a seller successfully limiting a buyer's remedies to a tight indemnity package subject to caps, baskets, and other limitations, or leaving the back door wide open for unanticipated buyer remedies?

Srinivas Raju will be a speaker during this webcast, which will cover:

  • Unintended consequences of "plain ol' fraud"
  • Does a buyer even need a fraud exception?
  • Shielding from the risk of another person's fraud
