Hunton & Williams LLP is pleased to announce that its mergers and acquisitions practice earned high rankings in Thomson Reuters’ legal advisor league tables for full-year 2017.

“Despite an industry downturn in US M&A last year, Hunton had a great year. Our strong performance is a testament to the firm’s broad-based transactional platform, industry expertise and loyal clients,” said Steven Haas, who co-heads the firm’s M&A practice group with Steve Patterson.

“We are optimistic about 2018, particularly in light of tax reforms that will free up cash for strategic investments as well as the pursuit of disruptive technologies through M&A,” Patterson added.

Hunton & Williams ranked among the top 15 US law firms across three M&A categories and among the top 30 firms worldwide in deals announced in full-year 2017, including:

US Target Announced: #13
US Target Mid-Market: #8
Worldwide Mid-Market: #26

The firm’s M&A practice comprises more than 180 lawyers resident in the United States, Europe and Asia and, in conjunction with the firm’s highly regarded Latin America practice, has handled more than 600 transactions worth approximately $200 billion over the past five years. The team advises clients on virtually every form of corporate transaction, representing clients in virtually every sector of the economy.
