In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, Meredith Campion from Allen & Overy unpacks the interest findings out of the firm’s recent report charting the impact of COVID-19 on mergers and acquisitions.

Meredith joins host Jerome Doraisamy to take a closer look at the changes in volume and value of M&A deals in the wake of the pandemic, the sectors that have been most significantly affected, and the creative methods that buyers and sellers are using to progress deals under current restrictions.


They also discuss why M&A has been so susceptible to the impacts of the coronavirus, how Australian M&A has fared relative to the rest of the Asia-Pacific region, and the positive developments that have come out of the pandemic.
