M&A in Tech Across Borders: legal trends, risks, and common pitfalls

16 July 2020 - 17:00

Cross-border Technology M&A was on the rise before Covid-19: both for technology companies looking for in-sector growth and for non-tech companies wishing to broaden their scope and gain access to new markets. Covid-19 has accelerated these trends, highlighting previously unseen distressed M&A aspects into M&A Tech deals. We will discuss, in the cross-border context, the latest trends in Tech M&A deals, the evolution of corporate and contractual structures, the ever-increasing impact of regulatory and government scrutiny, common pitfalls and new risk areas.
