Morrison & Foerster partner Christine Lyon discusses how corporate executives have increasingly taken the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the California Consumer Privacy Act into consideration as they conduct mergers and acquisitions in the IAPP Daily Dashboard article entitled “GDPR, CCPA factoring into more M&A deals

Ms. Lyon indicated that buyers want to know “if the companies are flexible to upcoming privacy laws, or are there conflicts that are inherently problematic. Companies buying data-driven technologies are taking a deep-dive before signing deals and thinking ahead to remediate any issues if they find them.”
