Matheson has once again been recognised as the leading Irish law firm for international bond issues in league tables published in January 2013 by international financial publisher, Thomson Reuters. The league tables for 2012 show that Matheson advised on more international debt capital markets transactions than any other Irish law firm. Matheson was ranked 5th in the world (up from 9th position in 2011) by total number of international bond deals and was the only Irish law firm to be placed among the top ten international legal firms.
This result continues the previous excellent results obtained by Matheson in the Thomson Reuters league tables every year since they began in 2005. Turlough Galvin, Head of the Structured Finance and Derivatives Group at Matheson said: "Although market conditions for public deals throughout 2012 were not ideal, our broad and diverse base of international clients continue to structure innovative debt capital markets transactions in Ireland. We look forward to continuing to work on new projects with our clients in 2013.”
