M&A Trends Report

Please download a copy of Lex Mundi’s Global M&A Trends Report 2023, designed to give readers a concise overview of the insights and predictions of M&A practitioners across 71 jurisdictions in the Lex Mundi network, including their key areas of concern and a look forward on expected deal activity in 2023.

Looking back to the results of last year’s survey, our respondents expected a good year after record-breaking activity in 2021. This proved to be an accurate prediction for most jurisdictions in the Lex Mundi network. This year, most respondents remain optimistic about deal activity in 2023, but there are a larger number of member firms expecting some drop-off in activity. The economic environment takes the top spot as the key uncertainty for most respondents (but not in every region, with our firms in Latin America and the Caribbean placing it only third on the list). Member firms generally report that the focus on COVID-19 in M&A deals has diminished if not all but disappeared.

This report was produced by the Lex Mundi Cross-Border Transactions (CBT) Group. The CBT Group provides access to the experienced, top-tier legal advice clients require to expand their operations and investments into global markets. Through our member firms’ global reach, and their indigenous know-how and the relationships that they have fostered with regulators and other key stakeholders in their respective jurisdictions, the CBT Group is uniquely positioned to counsel clients on successfully executing complex cross-border transactions and multijurisdictional projects.
