Transaction work – or good old fashioned deals – is the lifeblood of City of London law firm mergers and acquisition departments. Indeed, many firms in the Square Mile have built entire business models around M&A.
But deals have been have been in doldrums recently. Global activity in 2016 was reported to be down by nearly 20 compared to the previous year. And the British voters haven't done the local deal market any favours by plumping to wave goodbye to the EU.
