Companies who are looking to acquire assets or other companies tend not to broadcast their intentions. So, becoming the law firm to handle a transaction tends to be a matter of existing client relationships or, even a matter of luck. Not anymore. With this M&A research strategy, you can identify likely company acquirers and potential targets. This simple yet common sense exercise can help you reveal merger and acquisition opportunities before you competition does. It can even identify target acquisitions for your clients that may not have been on their radar. Use the research method for industry segments, geographic markets or to narrow a field of rumored participants to see which players might add the most value to a company's portfolio. Used by Private Equity firms to narrow their targets, the research methods are not fool proof. But they will narrow the pool of potential players to a manageable group for more comprehensive analysis and provide topics for client conversations.
