"The M&A market cooled off in the third quarter after a blistering start to 2018," notes
Rankings include the names of lead M&A and/or corporate partners at law firms who represented principals and investment advisers. Only deals involving a change of control at a target company with a market value of $100 million or more are included, and only when a key party involved is a U.S. company. Unless the target is a recognized stand-alone operating business, rankings will not include asset sales, unit sales, sales of subsidiaries, spin-offs or joint ventures.
