The American Lawyer’s Corporate Scorecard tracks the transactional practices of leading firms. Corporate finance is a collection of subspecialties, and our scorecard ranks firms within those areas. Unless otherwise noted, data includes only public, registered, underwritten offerings or deals transacted in 2006, including firmly underwritten rule 144a transactions, but not pure private placements or the filing of shelf registrations. Except for the charts ranking representation of principals in mergers and acquisitions, only firms that are ranked by the number of issues or deals are ranked by value.

For the full version of the Corporate Scorecard, which also includes Private Equity, Corporte Debt, Asset- and Mortgate-backed Securities and Project Finance, see the April print edition of The American Lawyer.

Mergers and Acquisitions. Data includes deals announced but not necessarily completed in 2006 that are valued at $100 million or more and involve at least one U.S.-based target, acquiror, or parent. Transactions include asset sales, spin-offs, and private equity deals. Equity carve-outs and stake repurchases are not included. Only firms in the rank-by-value column on the counsel to principal chart are ranked by number of deals. In order to receive credit for a deal on the counsel to principal chart, the law firm must have been counsel to target, acquiror, investor, seller, parent, management, or shareholder group. The counsel to principal chart is ranked by value of deals. The counsel to investment adviser chart is ranked by number of deals.

Equities. Data includes worldwide issues by U.S. corporations, including secondaries, convertible bonds, and convertible and nonconvertible preferred stock. It excludes asset-backed securities and REITs. IPOs include offerings by U.S. and foreign corporations in the U.S. marketplace.

Municipal Bonds. Data is based on long-term municipal new issues underwritten in 2006. Short-term, preliminary, and private placement issues are not included.

Reits. Data includes equities and debt offerings by real estate investment trusts.

Bankruptcy. Debtor’s counsel includes only the law firm that filed the bankruptcy on behalf of the company. The asset figures used to determine the largest bankruptcies are from the companies’ most recently filed annual reports prior to filing under Chapter 11.
