To know or not to know – disclosure regimes in European M&A
The Westin Paris


Corporate and M&A Law Committee (Lead)
European Regional Forum


Disclosures usually exclude or limit a seller’s liability for breach of representations and warranties. Whereas in the US, only specific disclosures are standard, in Europe disclosure of the whole data room becomes increasingly common. There are several disclosure regimes available and used today in European M&A. The panel will introduce the audience to those regimes and discuss their advantages and disadvantages for a buyer and/or a seller.
