How are privacy laws in Europe and California impacting dealmaking? Morrison & Foerster partner Christine E. Lyon explains in the Bloomberg Law article, “Privacy Rises in M&A Playbook as New Laws Highlight Risks.”

Buyers want to know “if the companies are flexible to upcoming privacy laws, or are there conflicts that are inherently problematic,” she said. To determine this, “companies buying data-driven technologies are taking a deep-dive before signing deals and thinking ahead to remediate any issues if they find them.”
