Insanely busy, everyone at 200+ for months on end. Big deals coming down the pike, so no sign of slowing down. Based on these other comments it seems to depend on where you are. I am in NY and do mainly middle-market PE M&A.

Larger deals seem to be steady, but the smaller deals and day to day corporate work has dropped off significantly for me.

like

Yeah that seems to be the trend here in Atlanta. What market are you in?

Super slow. Any deals I’ve worked on keep getting held up for PPP issues. Partners keep saying they think the fall will be busy though.

V5, London, PE/M&A. Dead silent summer, very busy August and September, very quiet October, rest of the year is uncertain.

Steady flow of both big strategic deals and smaller PE deals. I’ve been told that Q4 will be very crazy busy and volatile

Yes, NYC

Ebs and flows for me like a roller coaster

Very busy since September, doesn’t look like any relief is coming until January. I’m in PA doing primarily middle market PE M&A.

Looking to pay an attorney to walk me through M&A cases. I would bring the cases and do the work and would essentially pay a consulting fee. Please email me at if you're interested... Also looking for Chapter 11 consultants.

If a party breaches any warranty in the agreement, is the the other party automatically entitled to terminate the agreement for breach of a material term?
