Morrison & Foerster was honored to receive the Technology & Telecom Law Firm of the Year award at the inaugural 2018 Deal Awards, presented by The Deal.
The award builds on Morrison & Foerster’s already outstanding reputation in the technology, media and telecom (TMT) space, which the firm has earned through decades of representing many of the largest and highest-profile companies in the TMT space. In addition to being named as the Technology & Telecom Law Firm of the Year by The Deal, the firm has also earned recognition as Information Technology Law Firm of the Year by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” for seven of the past eight years, speaking to the consistent quality of the firm’s TMT offerings.
MoFo’s M&A group, like the firm, is widely recognized as the go-to practice in the TMT field, regularly advising on complex, high-profile and often industry-setting TMT transactions. The practice’s recent work has included:
While the firm’s M&A activity in the TMT space has played a large part in the recent success of our global M&A practice, which in 2017 advised on 161 deals including 17 deals with values north of $1 billion, our work has also included equally complex and high-profile deals in a range of key industries, including real estate, life sciences, energy, consumer products and financial institutions.
The Deal is a global media organization that provides news coverage and analysis on the M&A, private equity, and deal economy.
Hundreds of peer nominations were submitted for the 2018 Deal Awards. Analysts and experts were then interviewed to develop a shortlist, from which The Deal’s editorial staff selected the winners. The Deal Awards recognize the lawyers, bankers, and service providers that are deemed “integral” to M&A and private equity transactions.
Winners were recognized during an awards ceremony on June 21 in New York City.
