There is no denying the surge in special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) and that these financing vehicles have had a significant impact on financial markets. Join your favorite SPAC attorneys as they discuss the key trends highlighted in Mintz’s comprehensive new SPAC report produced in collaboration with PitchBook, Breaking Down the SPAC Surge: A Review of Key Trends & Issues Defining the Phenomenon.
