Goodmans ranked as Canada's leading M&A firm by Euromoney Legal Media Group


Area Mergers and Acquisitions


Euromoney Legal Media Group commissioned its research department to carry out an in-depth study of experts in the field of mergers and acquisitions. The initial stage of the research process involved distributing more than 4,000 questionnaires to senior practitioners or in-house counsel involved in the practice area in some 55 jurisdictions. The questionnaires asked leading figures to nominate those practitioners they considered to be among the most capable for M&A work. The results were analyzed and screened for firm, network and alliance bias.

Researchers then met with a number of acknowledged leading experts. Their considered views were solicited in a number of interviews held in major legal centres worldwide, including: Toronto, Chicago, New York, Washington DC, London, Paris, Brussels, Frankfurt, Milan, Singapore, Hong Kong and Sydney.

At the end of this process, three Goodmans partners all passed the strict threshold of personal nominations for inclusion. With three lawyers in the guide, Goodmans has more than any other firm in Canada, revealing Goodmans to be Canada's leading M&A firm.
