Section 6.13 Waiver of Conflicts. Each party to this Agreement acknowledges that Cooley LLP (“Cooley”), outside general counsel to the Company, has in the past performed and is or may now or in the future represent Purchaser or its affiliates in matters unrelated to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (the “Financing”), including representation of Purchaser or its affiliates in matters of a similar nature to the Financing.
