Technology is taking M&A and transactions to the next level, with much of the effort currently focused on making processes smarter and more efficient.  However, technology means lawyers need to re-consider the way they work.

 

6Nov EY Greenberg details

 

In 2017, the average AI company in Latin America earned $1.1 million in revenue, and expects to end 2018 with $1.64 million in revenue. Sectors with companies that have a high level of AI specialisation in Latin America include software, health and media, as well as education, mining, marketing, logistics, and retail. By 2025, an estimated 95 per cent of customer interactions will involve the use of AI technology, according to Harvard Business Review.

 

M&A lawyers are in need of tools that will reduce the burden of the due diligence process and help alleviate potential liabilities. One of the main benefits of AI is that it can do mundane and repetitive tasks normally done by humans. AI will not replace lawyers, instead it will become a tool that will improve efficiency.

 

Considering the tight timeframe for most M&A deals, AI-powered analytics can provide a rapid yet in-depth analysis of a target company’s value drivers and associated value creation opportunities and risks, conveying the real story behind the numbers and delivering valuable insights every step of the way.

 

All in less time, with less effort, and with more precision.
