New York partner Marc Leaf was quoted in a Merger Market article titled, “Making the right call? Telecoms M&A in 2015.” The feature Q&A asked “industry-leading figures” for their thoughts on the undergoing substantial changes in the telecoms sector and how these factors are changing mergers and acquisitions.
Marc provided insight on a range of topics including:
- The effect of antitrust concerns, particularly in Europe, on telecom dealmaking
- Company responses to consumers’ increasing preference for bundled telecoms and TV services and its effects on dealmaking
- Drivers behind the spate of megadeals this year to include the BT EE, Alcatatel-Nokia and Charter Comms-Time Warner deals
