The buoyant market of 2021 and early 2022 resulted in compressed deal timelines and frenzied competition, causing many deals to be signed with fewer buyer protections and less information about target businesses. The aftermath of this M&A surge has seen a rise in post-closing discoveries of target company issues, compounded by ongoing macroeconomic and geopolitical challenges. Yet acquirers suffering from “buyer’s remorse” have options. In this episode of Connected With Latham, London M&A partner Beatrice Lo speaks to fellow London partner Nell Perks and associate Leah Adeniran about how to address — and avoid — buyer’s remorse in M&A deals.
