Arthur Cox named Ireland Legal Adviser of the Year
Arthur Cox was named Ireland Legal Adviser of the Year at the Mergermarket M&A Awards Europe 2022 at the ceremony in London on 6 December 2022.
The Awards recognise the achievements of Europe’s top dealmakers and reward innovative advisory work on some of the region’s most transformative deals of the past year. An M&A Award from Mergermarket is true recognition of an outstanding year.
Commenting on the award, Partner and Head of Corporate and M&A, Cian McCourt, said: “We are very pleased to receive this award which recognises the quality and scale of work by our team to support our clients across a range of mandates and sectors. While the global economy has slowed, M&A volumes have remained resilient and Ireland remains an attractive investment destination so we look forward to 2023 with confidence.”
Deals led by the Arthur Cox M&A team in 2022 include: Mediahuis Ireland’s €30m acquisition of Carzone; the $3.8bn sale of CRH plc’s OldCastle BuildingEnvelope Inc. to KPS Capital Partners LP; and, Flutter Entertainment plc’s acquisition of Sisal S.p.A.
