How to tell us the story of your year in just 300 words.
Our awards process begins with the release of financial advisory and legal advisory shortlists in October. These shortlists are based on Mergermarket league table rankings, and include the top 3 firms by overall value and top 3 by overall volume for the period 1 October 2019 to 30 September 2020.
We will provide the panel with the following M&A data during the judging process:
Your pitch needs to tell the story behind these numbers.
The judges want to know why you deserve to win. An ideal pitch will show how you added value to deal processes, supported clients and offered creative solutions to complex situations.
Your pitch may choose to highlight your successes across a number of different deals. All corporate and private equity transactions are captured by our shortlisting process and mandates to any party on the deal are valid – buyer, seller or target. Explain why these deals were so important and what you did as an adviser to get them across the line.
Sometimes, one deal says it all. If you worked on a landmark transaction and that single deal tells the story of your year, then make clear you have selected one example to highlight. The judges look for the direct contribution your firm made to the process, especially if you were a lead adviser.
