Strategic Dealmaking To Face Headwinds In 2016

Loeb & Loeb partner Ross Emmerman is quoted in a recent article in Law360 regarding the record-breaking year of M&A that is expected to slow in 2016. Deal value in 2015 rang in at $4.87 trillion, which surpassed 2007’s record. Even though a decline is expected this year, shareholder activism — which drove a number of deals in 2015 — is geared to continue to prompt mergers, acquisitions, spin-offs and divestitures. Ross Emmerman states: “Activism isn’t slowing down and a lot of companies instead of resisting are working with activists to understand and respond to their concerns.”
