Gray Reed Named One of Top U.S. Mergers & Acquisitions Law Firms

Gray Reed was selected as one of the winners of the prestigious 2014 M&A Awards, sponsored by UK-based AI Global Media, Acquisition International Magazine and DealFlow Source.

A global network of expert M&A professionals, advisers, clients, peers and industry insiders voted on the winners. The awards celebrate excellence in all areas of M&A, recognizing not only individual deal success but also the firms and individuals behind the scenes whose tireless efforts and unrivaled expertise have contributed to the dramatic increase in global M&A activity over the past year.

“This year’s winners are some of the most dedicated, forward-thinking and determined we’ve seen in all our time running these awards,” said Kathryn Turner, Chief Coordinator of the 2014 M&A Awards. “Their insights and expertise have been invaluable to countless businesses around the world and they have been responsible for some of the most exciting and important game-changing deals and developments over the past 12 months.


The winners are determined by three factors, the first of which is the number of votes received. More than 53,000 people can vote for the winners, as well as a database of 150,000 people, all of whom have been actively involved in some form of transactional activity over the course of the last two years. The second factor is AI's substantial in-house research. Thirdly, the nominees supply supporting documents which may cement their nominations.
