Navigating M&A Deals in a Complex Environment

Navigating M&A Deals in a Complex Environment: central topic at the 1st Women in Tech M&A Talk in London, with special guest Marie Bates, Partner at Farrer & Co.

Avalia recently organized an amazing gathering in London, the inaugural Women in Avalia Tech M&A Talk, Dinner, & Networking, dedicated to women at the forefront of the Tech M&A and technology investment ecosystem in the United Kingdom.

Camilla Carrapatoso, our head of business in the UK, and Marie Bates, Partner at Farrer & Co, had a fire chat covering deal flow challenges and trends, market opportunities, and how technology can still be a mystery to the people who have the highest stake in the deal or business.

Marie Bates, the special guest for the evening, is an experienced lawyer specializing in mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, investments, corporate governance, and general corporate advisory, and added great value to the discussion.

It was a success and provided an invaluable opportunity for the professionals to connect with one another, share experiences, and learn from each other’s best practices.

“In our first Women in Tech M&A event I had the privilege to be surrounded by so many powerful women; with one of them being Marie Bates, Partner at Farrer & Co, who raised some key points as we discussed the current deal environment, how to successfully navigate a deal process, value creation in a volatile deal environment and bits of advice on managing complex due diligence processes in a challenging market.
The mission of creating a space for women leaders in both industries to discuss business and network was accomplished and we look forward to the next one already.”
