A&L Goodbody named Ireland M&A Legal Advisor of the Year
A&L Goodbody has been named Ireland M&A Legal Advisor of the Year at the Mergermarket European M&A Awards in London.
The awards recognise excellence in corporate, private equity, banking and legal M&A expertise across a number of European jurisdictions.
Nominations are reviewed by a panel of editors from Mergermarket, as well as European industry experts, who analyse how innovative structures are applied to M&A transactions.
Speaking after the awards ceremony on Thursday, Julian Yarr, managing partner of A&L Goodbody, said: “The Mergermarket award is yet another strong endorsement of our commitment to our clients and the quality of advice and service that we provide to them.
“We are very proud that our role in advising on some of the most complex and significant deals in Ireland has been, once again, recognised by the industry.”
The firm’s M&A team led on prominent deals this year, including advising international clients like Verizon on its acquisition of Fleetmatics; Johnson Controls on its merger with Tyco; and Pfizer on its proposed merger with Allergan. The team also advised domestic clients including Dalata Hotel Group on a number of transactions, and ABP Food Group on a joint venture with Slaney Foods.
