As the migration of COVID-19 continues to impact the financial markets, international trade, business operations and social interactions around the world, we already see its impact on risk allocation in deals. One of the key risk allocation tools to evolve in M&A over the past several years is transactional liability insurance—often in the form of representations and warranties insurance—and this insurance coverage is already starting to evolve in response to global events.
