Frank Aquila and Melissa Sawyer Author Article Looking Back on 2013 for The M&A Lawyer

December 16, 2013

In its November/December 2013 issue, The M&A Lawyer published an article written by Mr. Aquila and Ms. Sawyer titled, “The Way Way Back: 2013 In Review and What To Expect In 2014.” The article covered many major M&A developments of the past year, beginning with a market overview and moving into summaries of major events in shareholder activism, unsolicited bids, private transactions, inversion deals and uncompleted deals during 2013. Mr. Aquila and Ms. Sawyer then discussed the recent state of deal litigation, as well as the lack of newer directors joining boards. The article ended with the prediction that, in M&A, 2014 will look a good deal like 2013.
