The lasting impact of the pandemic on M&A transactions
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the global business landscape has evolved dramatically. Industry leaders are still learning to adapt as new deal drivers surface, risk appetites shift, and client demands change, particularly concerning mergers and acquisitions.
A year on, companies reflect on how best to work in the current environment. How did the events of 2020 shape M&A transactions, and what changes are here to stay?
- What are the new transaction risks, and how do transaction documents reflect them?
- Will M&A due diligence continue to be done remotely?
- How can AI technology help firms in this new era of deal-making?
