Goodwin is the Top Firm for Global and U.S. M&A in Q3 2021 League Tables

The recently released Q3 2021 Global League Tables have named Goodwin the number one legal advisor (by Deal Count) for Global and U.S. M&A deals. Goodwin had previously been named the top firm for Global and U.S. M&A in the Q1 and H1 League Tables. The firm was also recognized for its dominance in the middle market, ranking as the leading firm (by Deal Count) for Global and U.S. Mid-Market M&A and Small-Cap M&A.

 

This success took place as M&A activity continued to set records throughout 2021.
