contrast is pleased to announce that the fourth M&A Survey has been very successful. Thanks to the much appreciated participation of more than 70 banks, investment companies, M&A professionals and law firms, the M&A Survey now covers transactions with a total value of almost 15 billion euro. The results will be presented to the participants during a closed event on 28 March. If you were not able to participate in the M&A Survey, you can send an email to books@contrast-law.be and we will inform you as soon as the results are available. The M&A Survey will also be covered in an article that will be published shortly in Belgium’s leading corporate law review, Tijdschrift voor Rechtspersoon en Vennootschap / Revue pratique des sociétés.
