KWM tops M&A league tables in the Asia Pacific in Q2

King & Wood Mallesons has improved its ranking in the Asia Pacific M&A legal market, topping Mergermarket’s league tables for the second quarter.

KWM was ranked first by Mergermarket in the Asia-Pacific for both deal count and deal value and first in Australia/NZ for deal count.

Refinitiv (previously Thomson Reuters) also recognised strong performance by KWM, with a top four ranking for deal value in the Asia-Pacific and Australia/NZ.

KWM was able to maintain its leading rankings despite challenges in the region, including ongoing trade tensions and domestic deleveraging efforts in China impacting fundraising for private equity.

M&A Managing Partner, Evie Bruce, commented that the results were a clear endorsement of KWM’s reputation in the region.

“KWM is proud to have once again performed strongly in M&A in the Asia Pacific. The results are testament to our commitment to client service and performance and we look forward to continuing this momentum and improving throughout the rest of 2019,” she said.

Bloomberg also ranked KWM first for deal count in Australia/NZ and fourth in the Asia Pacific.
