The Asia Legal Awards have named Goodwin the M&A firm of the year for medium-sized deals under $500 million. The firm was honored at a virtual ceremony on May 5.
Goodwin’s Asia practice embodies the firm’s capital-meets-innovation platform and robust focus on the middle market. The Hong Kong-based M&A team is adept at advising both innovators and investors across the private equity, technology, healthcare and life sciences sectors, and possesses extensive experience in M&A, financing transactions, leveraged buyouts, stock and asset sales and joint ventures.
This success builds on the firm’s recent recognition in Chambers Asia-Pacific 2021. Chambers highly ranked Goodwin’s Corporate / M&A: Private Equity (Asia-Pacific) practice, praising it as “extremely responsive” with the ability to “navigate complicated problems with a commercial mindset.” Additionally, Chambers Asia-Pacific 2021 and Chambers Global 2021 each recognized Goodwin as an elite firm for Corporate / M&A in India, and Goodwin has been commended by The Legal 500 Asia-Pacific 2021 for its achievements in Corporate (including M&A).
As Asia’s most renowned ceremony for the legal elite, The Asia Legal Awards honor the best work in the region. Their coverage of practice areas and disciplines strives to identify the most important transactions and cases with the most complex and outstanding legal work in Asia.
