M&A Transactions in the post-COVID-19 world

In the post-COVID-19 world, where many aspects of legal practice are being conducted virtually, the use of virtual data rooms (VDRs) for due diligence in M&A transactions is more important than ever. Setting up a VDR (also called a virtual deal room or project room) and managing a transaction can be a daunting task involving sensitive data, multiple parties, and varying levels of access.
