UK M&A Q1 2020 trends - impact of Covid-19

The UK’s M&A outlook is uncertain as the COVID-19 pandemic tightens its grip on the world economy and companies and advisers alike struggle to assess the impact of the global equity and bond sell-off.

Join Lucinda Guthrie, Executive Editor, Transactions Division at Acuris, and Jonathan Klonowski, Research Editor EMEA, at Mergermarket for a live webinar discussing:
