Bird & Bird has recently been named the number one law firm globally for renewable energy mergers and acquisitions deals by volume. The league tables produced by Clean Energy Pipeline, a sister publication of The Lawyer Magazine, relate to 2017. We were also ranked second for the number of renewables projects and project finance deals globally. This builds on our ranking last year of number one law firm for European M&A and projects/project finance deals.
Corporate partner and co-head of the Energy & Utilities sector Matt Bonass commented: "This is a truly remarkable ranking and is thoroughly deserved by all of those working in our sector group. To be named the number one firm globally demonstrates the volume of work in the sector we are doing across all of our offices and across all of our transactional practice areas. We can now genuinely say to our clients and contacts that we are one of the leading firms in the World for renewable energy''.
