Cross-border M&A is complex and represents a growing percentage of the global M&A deal market. Just like the businesses in which they invest, strategic and financial acquirors are no longer limited by artificial jurisdictional boundaries and are instead looking for returns all around the world.
Buyers who are investing outside of their home markets, and sellers and other stakeholders involved in those investments, are required to navigate competing laws, market norms and regulatory regimes, not to mention language, culture and time zones. Having competent advisors is critical.
