Regulatory Submission Translation for International M&A
International M&A deals are increasingly subject to more rigorous, stringent regulatory reviews by global governments to ensure they don’t end up eliminating competition, reducing innovation, or leading to higher prices. Recently, national security concerns have also prompted government agencies such as the U.S. CFIUS to closely scrutinize international mergers and acquisitions. As such, M&A consulting firms and PE companies must submit a large amount of M&A documents for regulatory review. This is why you need Stepes. We have the linguistic professionals and subject matter experts to deliver regulatory submission translation services with accuracy and speed, at scale. Simply drag and drop your documents to our online portal to receive a translation quote in seconds.
