This ranks lead participation by law firms in which Texas offices were led the legal advisory teams for any parties of a merger, acquisition, divestiture or joint venture reported to or by the Texas Lawbook during the first six months of 2021 — whether or not values were disclosed.
In other words, the list includes not only deal leads, but Texas-led teams that counseled financial advisors, conflict committees, stockholders, etc.
Note that all reported deals are included whether or not deal values were disclosed. Therefore, some firm statistics reflect deal counts but no reported values. Where deal counts are the same, deal values are used as a secondary ranking.
An advisory team is considered Texas-led if one or both of the two lead lawyers for the firm team office in Texas.
