Reuters asked S&C M&A partner Krishna Veeraraghavan for his thoughts on trends in the healthcare industry in an article titled “Global M&A slides in first quarter as Brexit weighs on Europe.” Krishna explained that consolidation in the healthcare sector is unlikely to slow. “Between competition for new drugs, improving technology, the aging of the global population, a number of factors will continue to drive M&A in the healthcare sector, whether it's biotech or insurance providers,” he said.
