A valuable and useful resource for legal advisers and deal makers when advising businesses on cross-border deals in 2020.
HOUSTON, Texas (PRWEB) January 13, 2020
The report was developed to help in-house counsel and private practitioners understand the challenges and trends impacting cross-border transactions in the current environment of political and economic instability in a growing number of countries.
In light of the increasingly complex global market, the report compiles the insights of 69 member firms from across the globe with regards to mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in their respective jurisdictions, including key concerns facing private company M&A practitioners, deal activity by market segment and sector, and predictions for 2020.
Some of the key findings in the report include:
- Due diligence and transaction structure rank as top concerns for M&A practitioners
- Despite global uncertainly in the market, nearly 60% of the member firms contributing to the report expect deal activity in 2020 to remain the same
- Practitioners are seeing most M&A activity in the energy and power sectors, financial services, manufacturing, technology, and healthcare and life sciences
Jenny Karlsson, Senior Business Development Manager with Lex Mundi commented, “While the report is a great example of how our member firms collaborate on a global level and demonstrates their indigenous expertise in M&A in their respective jurisdictions, we also think it provides a valuable and useful resource for legal advisers and deal makers when advising businesses on cross-border deals in 2020.”
