Once Again, Goodwin Is The Top Firm for Global M&A

The latest, full-year 2023 league tables reinforced Goodwin’s standing as the most active law firm for global M&A. Mergermarket M&A Deal Drivers (Americas) report named Goodwin the number one firm (by deal count) for All Sectors M&A, Mid-Market M&A, and Life Sciences and Technology M&A. The M&A Deal Drivers (EMEA) report named Goodwin a leading firm for Mid-Market M&A, Life Sciences M&A, and Technology M&A across Europe. 

Earlier this year, Goodwin once again earned the top position among law firms in LSEG’s (formerly Refinitiv) FY 2023 league tables for Global M&A by deal count. The firm was also recognized by Mergermarket’s Global M&A league tables as the number one law firm for US M&A, as well as for Global, European, and US buyouts. 

Goodwin’s Global M&A Group leverages the firm’s deep and extensive experience and expertise across Private Equity, Technology, Life Sciences, Real Estate, Financial Services, Healthcare, Public M&A, and Litigation. This robust, industry-specific focus and client-centric approach enables Goodwin to guide clients through both public and private mergers and acquisitions transactions of all types, including leveraged buyouts, tender offers, spinoffs, divestitures, and go-privates – both in the United States and around the world.  

In recognition of the Global M&A Group’s accomplishments, Goodwin was recently named the Outstanding M&A Law Firm of the Year by the Atlas Awards, and has been highly ranked for Corporate M&A in several jurisdictions by Chambers Global. The group and its lawyers have also been cited for excellence by leading market commentators such as The Legal 500, The American Lawyer, Mergers & Acquisitions, and The Deal. 

Goodwin is in the business of building authentic, long-term relationships with clients, who are some of the world’s most successful and innovative investors, entrepreneurs and disruptors in the Life Sciences, Private Equity, Real Estate, Technology and Financial Industries, and where they converge. The firm’s immersive understanding of these industries – combined with its expertise across high-stakes litigation and dispute resolution, world-class regulatory compliance and advisory services, and complex transactions – sets Goodwin apart.
