Global law firm Baker McKenzie has topped Bloomberg’s EMEA Equity Offerings League Table (part of the Global Legal Advisor League Tables) as legal advisor to the issuer, for the first half of 2018. In the same table, the Firm placed fifth for acting as legal advisor to the manager. 

The Bloomberg Capital Markets Tables represent the top legal advisors across a broad array of deal types including loans, bonds, and equity  transactions; according to Bloomberg standards.

Koen Vanhaerents, Baker McKenzie’s Global Head of Capital Markets, said: "These results underline what has been clear for some time: Baker McKenzie is a transactional powerhouse. We close three deals a day, many of which are complex, involve multiple jurisdictions and are of strategic importance for our clients.”

Adam Farlow, Baker McKenzie’s EMEA Head of Capital Markets, added: "The team across EMEA has been incredibly busy doing not only a lot of deals but a lot of high-value, cross-border deals. In this region it's been a really good spread of not only our traditional issuer-side roles, but a growing underwriter practice, across multiple financial centres."
