Lessons Learned: How the Downturn has prepared us for the Bounceback
The repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic and accompanying economic downturn are being felt throughout the industry, legal being no exception. Technology disruption, changing consumer behavior and the slowdown in market growth has shifted the legal market, forcing key decision-makers to evaluate their responses and use lessons learned to prepare for the new normal. Coupled with the impending bounceback in deal-making worldwide, are organizations truly ready for an M&A comeback in 2021?
- How have the past six months better-prepared organizations for the next six? What are the key lessons learned?
- What active steps have organizations taken to prevent future vulnerability or ensure continued resilience?
- In the new normal, what kinds of deals are getting done? Are they deals that were already underway before the virus hit, or are they new business? What’s convincing the parties to move forward in such uncertain times?
- How are clients managing their businesses with so much uncertainty around the future? How are they adjusting their services/advice to account for this?
