Number one for Irish M&A Activity in 2010

DATE: 14.01.2011

Matheson advised on more mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in 2010 than any other law firm according to MergerMarket, Thomson Reuters and Experian Corpfin. This result now means that the firm has topped all three leading international M&A intelligence agencies tables having advised on the most M&A deals in the Irish market during 2010.

Liam Quirke, Managing Partner, Matheson said, "This is an excellent achievement for the firm. More importantly, we are optimistic about activity in 2011, especially by international companies and financial institutions doing business in and through Ireland, which are our primary focus."

Examples of headline deals include advising State Street Corporation on the acquisition of Bank of Ireland Asset Management; advising Xerox on its acquisition of the Irish Business Systems group; advising William Grant & Sons Holdings Ltd on its acquisition of C&C Group plc’s spirits and liqueur business, and advising Värde Partners and CC Asset Management Limited on the financing and acquisition of a portfolio of UK credit card accounts from CitiFinancial Europe plc.
