Session information

What's up? - Current legal developments in European private M&A


The pandemic seems to be behind us, but other events continue to influence the world economy and with it the M&A markets. In the face of those developments deal terms, concerns and precautions evolve over time, as does the role of the deal lawyer. This session will look at some of the latest trends and developments in European private M&A, including:

  • Value chain compliance risk analysis – who, what, where;
  • Steering clear of sanctions;
  • Deal-making in a downturn – evolving market practice and deal terms, from pandemic to recession; and
  • Report from the foreign direct investment (FDI) frontier
