Contingent Liability Insurance

Chubb’s Contingent Liability Insurance provides coverage within the context of the transaction. This differs from Representations and Warranties coverage, which covers only unknown exposures.

Product Highlights


The allocation of liabilities for identified contingent risks is typically heavily negotiated between parties. These exposures are often the subject of purchase price negotiations, specific indemnities, and/or escrow arrangements. Chubb’s Contingent Liability Insurance may eliminate or effectively mitigate the parties’ exposures to these risks — enabling the transaction to close more quickly, without either party assuming undue risks or limiting or impairing the sales proceeds from the transaction.
