M&A and capital markets Simpson Grierson news and events

Simpson Grierson is the top ranked New Zealand law firm in Thomson Reuters’ recently published 2017 M&A league table for Australia and New Zealand.

The firm was credited with 20 completed deals with a combined value of US$2.7bn.

This result continues Simpson Grierson’s strong league table performance. The firm has been ranked first or second New Zealand law firm by Thomson Reuters in five of the last six years.

“2017 was an interesting year. M&A deal flow was subdued initially with modest private equity activity and significant rejections from regulators. However there was a bounce of activity in the latter part of the year”, said Michael Pollard, head of Simpson Grierson’s corporate and commercial department.

“We are optimistic that 2018 will be a good year for the New Zealand M&A market”.
