Download publication

The year so far has been dominated by the UK‘s decision to leave the European Union. On the one hand, the uncertainty created is tempering dealmaking in some quarters as firms look to wait and see what the outcome will be. However, elsewhere, some are seeing the Leave vote as an opportunity, as the unsteadiness sweeping markets provides a platform for savvy firms to take advantage.

With this in mind, our survey provides a unique contrast of the expectations of European M&A pre- and post-Brexit, as corporates and private equity firms wrestle with its consequences for their businesses and dealmaking prospects.
