I really enjoyed reading this article by the team at Freshfields setting out what they see as the challenges and opportunities facing international businesses in 2020.
Although there are obvious topics that relate directly to our Disputes and Investigations practice, for example: antitrust, disputes, regulatory risk and cyber-security, it really struck me how many of these relate to other businesses within Alvarez & Marsal, for example shareholder activism where we work extensively and issue regular alerts (see: https://www.alvarezandmarsal.com/insights/am-activist-alert).
What is going to be important for businesses facing these challenges/opportunities is to partner with the right organisations who have the right expertise and the right approach in dealing with them.
As we head into 2020, we wanted to share with you, based on our worldwide advice to clients, some of the likely challenges and opportunities we see facing corporations around the globe in the coming period. We believe the following are key areas to watch for any Israeli company operating an international business.
