Goodwin was ranked third in the The Deal’s inaugural Private Equity League Tables for the first quarter of 2016. The firm advised on 24 total deals announced between January 1 and March 31 including representing 15 target companies, the most of any firm in the ranking.

The Deal’s Private Equity League Tables track the advisory class – law firms, investment banks and public relations counsel – that help financial sponsors make deals. The tables rank law firms based on the volume of merger and acquisition transactions including add-ons and management buyouts in which a private equity firm had a stake in the target, buyer or seller.

Goodwin’s nationally recognized Private Equity Group focuses on buyouts, recapitalizations, growth equity investments and portfolio company transactions in the U.S. and internationally with a leading position in the U.S. middle-markets and growth equity. With a team of over 100 attorneys, the practice covers the full life cycle of clients’ investments – from fund formation to exit and everything in between.
