Ms. Kleman will discuss recurring employee benefits issues, including traps for the unwary, and Mr. Weber will cover recurring environmental issues, such as environmental “red flags.” Mr. Wellman will present information on seller’s representation and warranties, covenants and post-closing indemnification.
