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 and private equity deals, only firms that are ranked by the number of issues or deals are ranked by value.

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.
