A&L Goodbody (ALG) has been ranked the number one Irish law firm for mergers and acquisitions (M&A) by deal volume for the first quarter of 2022, by the leading publication Mergermarket.
Commenting on the report findings, Richard Grey, Head of M&A said: "The rankings reinforce ALG’s position as the leading legal M&A adviser in the Irish market. Despite the uncertainties across global economies deal volumes held up reasonably well in the first quarter and we anticipate M&A activity to continue to be strong throughout the remainder of the year although unlikely to reach the record breaking levels of 2021. Consistent with the dominant activity drivers of 2021, we see this activity being driven by continued high levels of private equity activity and public company transactions such as the Hibernia REIT/Brookfield transaction announced in Q1. Sectors that we expect are likely to see a continued high level of activity are Financial Services, Technology, Pharma and Renewable energy."
