Elise Thorpe Shares M&A Expertise During Phoenix Business Journal Table of Experts Discussion

July 1, 2020

The novel coronavirus pandemic has impacted all aspects of the U.S. economy, including in the mergers and acquisition space. To get a clearer picture of those effects, Elise Thorpe, a principal with Lovitt & Touché, recently offered her M&A expertise with the Phoenix Business Journal as part of a Table of Experts discussion.

The impacts of the coronavirus have been mixed in the M&A space, Elise explained during the roundtable. Deals in the works prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic have generally continued moving forward — albeit at a far slower speed. On the other hand, Elise noted that many other businesses are sitting on the sidelines, instead taking a wait-and-see approach to reevaluate their situations in another six months or more.

At Lovitt & Touché, Elise and others work with businesses to identify and mitigate risks of any potential mergers and acquisitions, taking a 360-degree look at operations, finances and the business climate to determine the best path forward. Learn more about our M&A solutions.
