ByrneWallace has been ranked as one of Ireland’s top merger and acquisitions (M&A) legal advisers in the Experian MarketIQ UK and Republic of Ireland M&A Review 2016.

ByrneWallace rose from rank 20 in 2015 to rank 10 in 2016 in the league tables, which are based on data from Experian MarketIQ, Corpfin’s global M&A database and Companies House.

Feargal Brennan, head of ByrneWallace’s corporate team, said: “While overall the volume of M&A transactions in the Irish market during 2016 fell short of 2015 figures, M&A activity still remained strong with 422 transactions being announced.

“ByrneWallace advised on a significant number of transactions during this period, across a broad range of sectors, both of a domestic and international nature.

“It is encouraging to see that once again ByrneWallace features as a leading legal adviser on corporate transactions in Ireland.

“While clearly there are potential headwinds in the broader market, we are very confident that our clients will continue to seek out opportunities on the transactional side in the coming year and we are already seeing elevated levels of activity early in 2017.”
