With the steady emergence of new technologies and disruption of traditional industries, the technology M&A sector is poised to continue to grow and the demand for technology-savvy legal advisers is set to rise. The purpose of this edition of the Getting the Deal Through - Technology M&A 2021 guide is to provide an overview of the various factors affecting technology M&A transactions across various jurisdictions.
We begin by exploring the laws, regulations and policies that affect the structure and execution of technology M&A transactions, typically involving intellectual property, data privacy, and competition law.
Commentators also consider due diligence processes in their respective jurisdictions, how to assess cybersecurity risks for the purposes of M&A diligence, together with an analysis of representations, warranties and other deal terms common to technology M&A transactions.
