On Monday, October 19, M&A partner Melissa Sawyer, co-head of the Firm’s Corporate Governance & Activism practice, participated in a discussion at the Milken Institute Global Conference on “M&A: Dealing with Uncertainty.” The panel examined whether M&A activity will remain subdued through the rest of the COVID-19 pandemic; whether previously prohibitive deals may become viable as industries and business models adapt to the new climate; and what factors might incite dealmakers to seize opportunities in a disrupted economy.
