We are thrilled to have been ranked No.1 for M&A in the Middle East and Africa by Mergermarket by value for 2020.

Nigel Wellings, Partner in our Emerging Markets Private Equity Practice and Joint-Head of the London Corporate Practice commented: "Despite the unprecedented year, we have seen a steady flow of M&A activity across key regions and sectors. Our dedicated team of lawyers has continued to work successfully with clients to help them navigate and overcome the transactional challenges posed by the pandemic. This success is reflected in our continuing market leading position as the go-to firm for M&A transactions in Africa and the Middle East."

This ranking reinforces Clifford Chance's reputation as a leading law firm for M&A transactions in Africa and the Middle East and follows the Firm's recent win at the Private Equity Africa Awards and Tier one rankings in the leading global directories including Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners Global Guide.
