Mike Makofsky is Trendspotting the Post-Pandemic Corporate M&A Landscape
Coming out of the most disruptive global crisis the world has seen in the last century, the prognosis for a healthy return to a steady and active corporate mergers and acquisitions market appears to be pretty strong.

Our Big Debut - The Pandemic Effect on the Return to Court
McCarthy Lebit's Managing Principal, Rob Glickman, is our first guest with host Sally Spitz.  This week, on The More Report, Podcast Edition, we're talking about returning to court as things slowly return to normal.  Rob offers his perspective on how the courts have handled the pandemic, thus far, and what he sees as a permanent part of our "new normal," including his estimate for long it will really take to clear the logjam on the trial docket.  Let's just say he doesn't favor odds for a speedy "return to normal," but as with all change, there is good and bad.  Rob shares what he thinks has been the silver lining of the shift of operations for the courts and why he wasn't that upset to cancel 100K miles of air travel in 2020.
