The New State of M&A: North America

For all the advances that have been made, just how digitally mature and technologically sophisticated is the M&A, due diligence and asset marketing process for practitioners in North America?

In addition, what does the process look like for dealmakers today, in the future, and how much of it can and should be automated?

These are some of the key questions we wanted to answer in our latest report by surveying 300 US and Canada based M&A practitioners from corporates, private equity firms, investments banks, law and professional services firms.

What's Inside?

  • 2020 The Current State of M&A
  • 2025 The Future State of M&A
  • Case Study: Latham & Watkins
  • Case Study: National Bank
  • Datasite: With You Every Step of the Way 
  • Survey Results

The respondents, who form part of a global survey of 2,235 practitioners, not only provide insight on the current and future state of the dealmaking process, their responses reveal some interesting regional similarities and differences in opinion.
