Bird & Bird Nordics secures high rankings in dealmaker league tables for 2015

21 January 2016

Our firm has significantly bettered its rankings for mid-market M&A work across the Nordics in the annual Thomson Reuters for 2015, soaring up from 53 in 2014 to 25 for its Nordic M&A involvement. Moreover, our corporate presence in Finland achieved individual recognition in the M&A rankings for 2015 from Mergermarket, where it reached the top 10, finishing at 7 (based on the deal count) and being the highest ranked global law firm in that list.  

Our consistent presence in the Thomson Reuters top 50 and Mergermarket top 10 rankings is a substantial achievement for the region. This success reflects our increasingly more extensive local and regional expertise demonstrated on deals for e.g. advising publicly listed Talentum Corporation in its combination with another notable media company Alma Media Corporation in Finland and advising NETS Denmark A/S in their acquisition of shares and delisting of the Swedish company, DIBS Payment Services AB.

Matti Ylä-Mononen, Head of the Corporate/M&A (Nordics) comments: "These results are a positive sign that we are moving in the right direction with our determined effort to create a firm with a Nordic offering that would add genuine value for our M&A clients. Being the only global law firm with offices in the main Nordic markets Denmark, Finland and Sweden, we have a unique position to provide excellent coverage of advisory service for our clients in the region."
