M&A Trends Report

The global pandemic that shook the world in 2020 had a massive impact in 2021 as well, and although it continues to disrupt and affect virtually everyone’s life, it appears to be doing this less than many expected. Brexit too appears to have had less of an impact on business in Europe than perhaps anticipated – for now.
