International law firm Gowling WLG has taken the top spot in the latest AIM Advisers Rankings guide, with a total of 56 AIM clients quoted on the market.
The firm takes first place overall in the Report's two main categories: 'Number of AIM clients' and 'Market Capitalisation of AIM clients', leading by over £800M.
The firm topped the list earlier this year and has since added four new clients over the quarter. New additions include mining companies Bacanora Minerals Ltd, Bushveld Minerals Ltd, Mkango Resources Ltd, and Highland Gold Mining Ltd.
Corporate Partner Charles Bond said: "We are very pleased that our Capital Markets team has, once again, achieved the top ranking in both categories. This is a testament to the wealth of expertise and knowledge within the team, as well as the hard work put in to service successful transactions for our clients.
"It demonstrates the strength of our leading AIM practice, as we continue to work with excellent clients on both a domestic and international level."
The firm's Corporate team has recently acted for SEC S.p.A, the largest independent advocacy, public relations and integrated communications agency in the Italian market, on its admission to trading on AIM.
