CHSH scores with a workshop on "M&A Insurance"


On 23 April 2018, corporate law firm Cerha Hempel Spiegelfeld Hlawati held a workshop on the topical issue of "M&A Insurance" in conjunction with insurance undertaking Marsh.

Dr. Philipp GIESSEN (Marsh GmbH | Private Equity, Mergers & Acquisitions) and Mag. Christian BERGER (Marsh Austria GmbH | Country Head) gave an introduction to the subject following a welcome by Dr. Thomas TRETTNAK (Partner, CHSH) and Mag. Mark KRENN (Partner, CHSH). After this, the numerous participants simulated the negotiation and conclusion of an insurance policy using a boilerplate policy for buyers and they also received valuable practical tips from the experts.

 "Meanwhile, we're now confronted with M&A insurance in almost every M&A transaction performed in Austria. As lawyers we're therefore extremely pleased to be able to expand our practical experience further in this workshop with Marsh and to be able to apply this experience directly in future to the benefit of our clients", said Dr. Thomas TRETTNAK.
