A&L Goodbody has been awarded 'Legal Advisor of the Year' for Ireland at the Financial Times and Mergermarket European M&A Awards Ceremony in London.

The awards recognise excellence in corporate, private equity, banking and legal M&A expertise across a number of European jurisdictions. Nominations are reviewed by a panel of editors from the Financial Times and Mergermarket, as well as M&A experts, who analyse the deal data for firms, in addition to how innovative structures are applied to transactions.

This follows a number of other recent successes for the Firm. These include being awarded Irish Law Firm of the Year (IFLR), Ireland's Most Innovative Law Firm (Financial Times) and No. 1 Irish M&A Law Firm (Bloomberg, Mergermarket, Thomson Reuters and Corpfin).

Commenting on this award, Managing Partner of A&L Goodbody, Julian Yarr said: "We are delighted that our role in advising on some of the most complex and significant deals in Ireland has again been recognised. The Financial Times and Mergermarket award is a strong endorsement of our commitment to our clients and the quality of advice and service at A&L Goodbody. It also consolidates A&L Goodbody’s position as the market leader in Mergers and Acquisitions in Ireland."
