Frank Aquila Discusses Shifting M&A Landscape with The American Lawyer

May 16, 2022

S&C's Senior M&A partner Frank Aquila spoke with The American Lawyer on the change in deal flow in 2022. Frank indicated that, while the market looks different following 2021's record-breaking year, the bigger deals will still get done, with technology M&A being a potential growth area.
Frank said, “To a certain extent, the big deals can get done whenever the big players want them. […] They have the best access to cash, the best access to borrowing. Typically the more leveraged buyer has more issues. I think big deals will get done, but it will be on a case-by-case basis.”
