While the Japanese M & A market continues to grow steadily due to the corona slump, M & A practices are facing dynamic and diverse changes.
In particular, with regard to legal due diligence, which can be said to be a foothold for M & A, new measures are required in the Corona disaster, and development based on recent trends in M ​​& A practice is drawing attention.In carve-out M & A, which is becoming more active against the backdrop of demands for improved capital efficiency and more efficient business operations, analysis of "stand-alone problems" is essential, as well as new trends in competition law examinations, revisions to foreign capital regulations, and globalization. The impact of responding to ESG, which is attracting attention, on deals is also a point of view that cannot be overlooked in legal due diligence.Attention is also focused on the use of technology for scrutinizing and examining vast amounts of materials.
