Global Legal Network is a group of professionals operating globally from 10 countries. It provides a broad spectrum of differentiated services - focused on delivering value and innovation. We partner with Legal teams across Accenture to build efficiencies and centers of excellence related to Legal services; and through our size, geographic spread and language diversity, the Global Legal Network is able to drive quality, agility and speed in our services, aligned to Accenture’s relentless focus on maximum efficiency and operational effectiveness.

Acquisitions and Corporate Advisory (ACA) is part of our Corporate Services. Our Acquisition team provide expertise and accurate due diligence reviews to the M&As to match the type of business or company being acquired, such as its risk profile, customer base, and product lines, conducting synergies assessments by deal type (channel, scope, scale, technology) to ensure value is not lost during integration. Additionally, the Corporate Support teams have a broad view into overall corporate operations to collaborate in key Corporate areas such as (i) Corporate matters (ii) E-Discovery, (iii) Litigation, (iv) Contract Documentation Alignment Team (CDAT), (v) Government relations and (vi) Legal Cyber Review Team (LCRT).

As other corporate functions, ACA is also already focusing on technology disruption. The “three A’s” (automation, artificial intelligence, and analytics) are just a few technology disrupters that will likely shape the function in the near future.

Acquisitions provides end-to-end support throughout Accenture’s acquisition lifecycle from legal due diligence exercise to post-merger integration. The team supports review of client and vendor contracts and corporate documents of the target company in legal due diligence exercises, helping the V&A Legal teams to understand the target company’s risk profile and put in place the remediation plan for critical findings. The team also helps manage post-merger integration activities to ensure a seamless transition of the target company’s contracts and business to Accenture.
