Why is a career in M&A and investment law a recession-proof career?

  • While major economies around the world went into recession, law firms expected M&A practice to suffer and cut down on hiring. In reality, there was a boom in M&A activities.
  • Not only M&A, FDI and domestic investment also picked up! Capital markets did extremely well despite the recession, in India and across the world, keeping corporate transactional lawyers extremely busy.
  • Financial Express reported Private Equity (PE), M&A deals in India during November 2020 to be the highest in the last 5 years.
  • Your Story reported a new benchmark for Indian start-ups in 2021 with record of 119 M&A deals.
  • M&A was not the only one, venture capital boomed as well in 2020, beating all expectations.
  • Crunchbase numbers show that global venture funding in the first half of 2021 surged 61% compared to the prior peak of $179 billion in the second half of 2020. That’s up 95% compared with the first half of 2020.
  • The post-vaccine world is an active and exciting time for the legal industry as the economies are set to reopen.
  • M&A, investment and finance transactions are the bread-and-butter of corporate law firms.
  • Even companies that are going to get into M&A activities soon do hire M&A and investment lawyers. Successful M&A and finance lawyers can make difficult transactions happen smoothly, are paid handsomely and are part of news-making deals.
