Conducting cross-border M&A transactions in the current climate is more challenging than ever – in addition to an economic slowdown and geopolitical concerns, businesses continue to face a rapidly changing and increasingly uncertain legal and regulatory landscape. So, staying up to date on the latest market trends and legal developments is critical.

Our Global Private M&A Guide examines the impact of new and existing laws on deal structuring and private M&A generally in nearly 40 countries. It provides a holistic overview of the key legal and regulatory M&A framework through all stages of the transaction process, including structuring the deal, getting to signing, integration and understanding the broader legal landscape – foreign investment restrictions, antitrust issues, tax considerations, employment law obligations and anti-bribery concerns.

This guide is available online, allowing you to filter data by jurisdiction or topic, compare data across jurisdictions and topics, or examine one particular jurisdiction in depth.
