The Deal featured Morrison & Foerster’s Jackie Liu, co-chair of the firm’s Corporate Department, in the article “Motherhood & M&A: A Series of Multi-Tasks," in which Ms. Liu sheds light on her experience as a woman in M&A advisory, a historically male-dominated field.
“I knew going into it that the M&A world was a male-dominated field, so I expected challenges in that regard, but the excitement I get from dealmaking on behalf of world-leading companies motivated me to persevere,” she said. “It’s true I’ve had to adapt my style accordingly: the way in which I negotiate, the way I handle certain situations, the way I communicate with clients and potential clients, and the ways in which I prove my counsel is a value-add.”
