Goodwin Recognized As The Number One Firm For M+A, Venture Capital And Venture And Private Equity Rounds In Q1-Q3 2020

Recently released league tables from PitchBook and Refinitiv have named Goodwin the number one firm for M&A deals, venture capital exits, and venture and private equity rounds. According to PitchBook, Goodwin was the top firm (by deal count) in Q3 for global venture capital exits and M&A transactions representing both global and U.S. companies. Similarly, Refinitiv named Goodwin the top global law firm to advise investors in Q1-Q3, across all venture capital and private equity rounds (by deal count) as well as venture capital rounds (by deal count and deal value).

These results continue the firm’s strong recent track record of preeminent rankings by league tables publications, which includes being recognized as the top firm for global venture capital, M&A, and private equity deals in Q2 2020 and the leading firm for U.S. private equity, M&A, venture capital, and capital markets deals throughout 2019.

Driving this success is a collaborative team of M&A lawyers equally proficient at advising both the innovators and the investors across the private equity, technology, healthcare, real estate and life sciences sectors, while the firm’s venture capital and private equity lawyers are adept at helping clients around the world navigate today’s rapidly changing business landscape. This strategic advantage allows Goodwin to provide guidance throughout the entire corporate lifecycle, and makes it the only law firm positioned at the intersection of capital and innovation.
