Thomson Reuters recently published its mid-market M&A legal advisory league tables for the first three quarters of 2018* – and Gowling WLG topped the rankings by two key measures: 

  • Gowling WLG was the #1 Canadian law firm for worldwide mid-market M&A transactions by deal count (tied for twentieth place among all law firms globally), having been credited for its role in 113 transactions. 
  • Gowling WLG was the #1 firm globally for Canadian mid-market M&A transactions by deal count, with 99 credited transactions.

Mid-market deals are defined as transactions up to US$500 million in value and also include transactions that have no announced values.

Quarter after quarter, Gowling WLG continues to build on its reputation as one of the world's busiest law firms for Canadian M&A. Combining legal knowledge and business acumen, members of the firm's M&A Group serve as trusted advisers to a range of Canadian and international clients — both publicly traded and privately held — across all major industry sectors.
