M&A Insurance

What makes a successful deal?

Our experience, backed by research, shows that successful transactions have two common themes.

  1. An early and intense focus on people issues – retaining critical workforce skills, measuring leadership, communicating and engaging with employees and building a culture that aligns with strategic goals.
  2. A rigorous approach to risk management – identifying and managing risk early enables all parties to negotiate with greater certainty and confidence.

From the insurance perspective, we continually refine and expand due diligence reviews of operational insurances — to ensure they are relevant and effective for the target, purchaser and lender, reflect the latest market position and protect against downside financial risk.
