Mergers and acquisitions and private equity partner Jean-Pierre Martel recently spoke with Bloomberg about the latest rules passed by the French National Assembly and their impact on the country’s M&A market.
Martel commented that, “the measures were clearly thought up by people living in the last century. It’s implicitly aimed at foreigners and meant to defend French interests. The biggest French companies have significant foreign investors and are very international. Seen from abroad, this will scare everyone.”
