Once seen merely as a document which tried to provide the seller with some protection against the risk of warranty claims, the disclosure letter has become one of the key documents in any sale of shares or assets, and a heavily negotiable part of the process.

This online workshop session will look at the case law which sets out the rules for full, fair and accurate disclosure so that sellers can be sure they have maximised the protection available to them, and buyers can ensure that they are not caught out.

If you have some experience of corporate transaction work but are looking for a clearer understanding of the legal issues involved in disclosure and tips on how to make those rules work in your favour, then this course is for you. It will be of value to anyone who deals with corporate transaction work under UK law.
