Session information

Winds of change? - What a deal lawyer should know about acquisition finance today


The world economy is facing a serious downturn with, among other things, compromised supply chains, a war in Europe, high inflation and the beginning of an energy crisis. With this, inevitably, the availability of (affordable) debt is no longer guaranteed and the terms and conditions for acquisition finance are impacted. The panel will take stock with respect to these aspects, discuss the latest trends and discuss how to best address them.
