Field Report: The Global M&A Environment

The global M&A market experienced a big dip in activity this year, with sporadic and uneven comebacks expected to continue as we hit the second wave of the worldwide pandemic. So what have we learned from this experience so far in 2020?

Between September and October 2020, we gathered legal professionals from dozens of leading law firms across the globe: Asia-Pacific, Continental Europe, UK, and North America, to discuss trends they are seeing in M&A.

In this report, we summarize what leaders on the front line are saying about the current sentiment and future outlook of the M&A market. We found that while the comeback has been uneven across sectors, we expect a revival of deal volumes and transactional activity. Firms that are prepared will benefit from it, giving importance to the continued investment in technology to adjust to the new reality.

Insights in the report include:

  • How the M&A environment differs regionally in Asia-Pacific, Continental Europe, UK, and North America
