Global law firm White & Case LLP was named "Middle East North Africa M&A Legal Adviser of the Year" at the annual Mergermarket Europe M&A Awards, announced via email on December 10.
The Europe M&A Awards recognize financial and legal advisers' excellence in M&A deals in Europe, and are based on Mergermarket league tables and input from an independent judging panel.
"We are extremely proud and grateful to have been awarded this prestigious international accolade for our MENA M&A practice," said Abdulwahid Alulama, Office Executive Partner in the UAE. "This award is further recognition of the strength of our leading Corporate M&A and Private Equity practice across the MENA region."
"It also underscores our ongoing commitment to deliver 'best in class' execution on the ground here in MENA, providing the very level of service to clients across the region that you would expect in all major financial centres," said Marcus Booth, who leads the Firm's private equity and financial sponsor practice across the MENA region.
White & Case's Head of the Middle East, Doug Peel, had this to say: "This award is testament to the ongoing hard work that the team has put in over many months and years to deliver some of the most complex and first-of their-kind transactions across the MENA region."
