Jan 13, 2014
International mergers & acquisitions (M&A) intelligence service MergerMarket released its Global M&A Trend Report for 2013. Based on the report results, LAWIN has been recognized among the leading legal advisors in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) market with the highest number of major M&A transactions advised in this region in 2013 compared to any other legal advisors from the Baltics.

LAWIN is also proud to be the only Baltic law firm mentioned among the top legal advisors in Central and Eastern Europe, together with leading law firms such as Clifford Chance, Allen & Overy, Baker & McKenzie. The report provides an overview of M&A activity in 2013 in the global and major regional markets, all data is based on transactions over US$ 5m. MergerMarket data reveals that in 2013 LAWIN has advised on 14 such M&A transactions.

As noted by Raimonds Slaidins, LAWIN Corporate and M&A practice group leader in Latvia, "In addition to 2013 having been a good, consistent year for transactional work across the Baltics, we're also very encouraged to see the increasing M&A activity in the Latvian market at the beginning of 2014. Despite some caution still noted in the market, we believe all indications are in place for the M&A business environment to recover from its recent stagnation and 2014 should be an even better year for M&A activity than the previous one."
