Deals, Related Disputes Rise as Part of a Complex Global M&A Landscape, Upcoming BRG Study Finds

November 18, 2021

Tech is a top source for M&A disputes, and cross-border fights are common, according to an upcoming BRG study.

M&A volume is expected to increase globally in 2022—and M&A disputes are expected to rise along with it. But the picture is more complicated when comparing regions and looking at how dealmakers and others involved think disputes best can be avoided.

Those are among the top findings in a study BRG is set to release this month. With a global focus, the new research surveyed 115 lawyers (either private practice or in-house), 80 private equity professionals and 30 corporate finance advisors in August 2021. Respondents to the study, which follows BRG’s 2020 M&A Disputes Report, offer key regional and sector insights.

The study also provides important qualitative analysis from top legal minds in dealmaking and disputes. Here’s a preview of the results.
