As ever, the US is a key trading partner when it comes to UK M&A, a theme that we expect to continue despite Brexit and the US election outcome.

It will be interesting to get a first-hand perspective from our US and international colleagues later this month when we meet in San Francisco for the biannual conference of our international partnership; over 100 of my international colleagues will be attending.

In the interim, do take a few minutes to watch this video offering a thought-provoking, and positive, perspective from the Managing Partner of our US partner firm.
