S&C Global Head of M&A Frank Aquila Talks to Law360 on How Brexit May Spur U.K. DealmakingFebruary 7, 2020
Frank Aquila, global head of M&A at Sullivan & Cromwell, offered his views on how Brexit might impact U.K. M&A activity in a recent Law360 article. Frank stated that the formal departure of Britain from the European Union, which occurred on January 31, removes uncertainty and should lead to an uptick in activity.
