Mergermarket Europe M&A Awards 2020: Winners Announced

Congratulations to the winners of the Mergermarket Europe M&A Awards 2020.

Today, the winners of Mergermarket's European M&A Awards 2020 are revealed. The M&A awards recognise excellence in M&A advisory during an incredibly volatile year for dealmakers. 

Despite being announced online this year without the gala dinner, the in-depth analysis by the judging panel remained the same. League table rankings determined the shortlist which was announced in October. The judging panel reviewed all of the pitches submitted by the top-ranked advisors to determine the winner. The methodology ensures Mergermarket M&A Awards are an independent recognition of financial and legal advisory work.

"There's no doubt that 2020 will go down in the history books," said John West, Managing Editor in Europe of Mergermarket. "Deal activity has been defined by one issue, with the pace of M&A in all geographies determined by the opening and closing of economies. Yet this year's M&A award winners confirm that 2020 was not a write-off. Companies have been forced to reposition portfolios and time strategic M&A to perfection. Private equity continues to capitalise on market conditions too, a trend that will last well into 2021. This year's M&A award winners have demonstrated their ability to adapt to the headwinds and deliver value for clients - in the face of unprecedented complexity and volatility. Congratulations to all of this year's successful firms."
