Mergers & acquisitions (M&A) plays an instrumental role in shaping the economy. Sentiment in M&A has always been affected by global trends and with the COVID-19 pandemic, there is now greater uncertainty and challenges. We have also seen significant changes in M&A key drivers globally, as well as in M&A negotiations and the way due diligence is now being conducted. These factors have great impact on the role of an in-house corporate counsel which will be further discussed in this webinar.
