Freshfields named European M&A Legal Adviser of the Year by Mergermarket

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP (‘Freshfields’) has been recognised at the annual Mergermarket European M&A Awards. The firm won the award for European M&A Legal Adviser of the Year 2017, which is given based on analysis by Mergermarket of the overall value of transactions and overall volume of deals advised on by the firm over the preceding twelve months. 
The judges highlighted at the firm’s work on the merger of Henderson Group and Janus Capital Group when presenting the award.  They took particular note of Freshfields’ integrated approach to the multijurisdictional deal as well as the innovation required for a non-US public company to issue stock as consideration for the acquisition of a US public company, which is nearly without precedent. 
The award was presented at a dinner on 7 December at Banqueting House in London.
