White & Case and Kirkland & Ellis were the top mergers and acquisitions (M&A) legal advisers in the retail sector for H1 2022 by value and volume, respectively, according to the latest legal advisers league table by GlobalData.

Based on its Financial Deals Database, the leading data and analytics company has revealed that White & Case achieved its leading position by value by advising on $1.7 billion worth of deals. Meanwhile, Kirkland & Ellis led by volume by advising on a total of nine deals.

According to GlobalData’s report, ‘Global and Retail M&A Report Legal Adviser League Tables H1 2022’, a total of 963 M&A deals worth $40.9 billion were announced in the retail sector during H1 2022.

Bose comments: “Kirkland & Ellis, apart from leading by volume, also gave strong competition for the top position by value. However, it fell short of just $68 million to occupy the top position by value and settled for the third position by this metric. Meanwhile, White & Case led by value but could not secure a ranking among the top 10 by volume.”

An analysis of GlobalData’s Financial Deals Database reveals that Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz occupied the second position by value by advising on $1.6 billion worth of deals, followed by  Kirkland & Ellis with $1.6 billion, Davis Polk & Wardwell with $1.3 billion, and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher with $1.3 billion.

Meanwhile, CMS occupied the second position in terms of volume with nine deals, followed by AZB & Partners with seven deals, Jones Day with six deals, and Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison with six deals.
