LI 2018-19 league tables are almost ready to go

Our M&A and private equity / VC corporate law firm league tables - which we launched in December of last year and have been working on for a long time - are nearly finalised for the financial year 2018-19 (running from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019).

We are pleased to say that these are shaping up to be, by far, the most complete and transparent picture of corporate deals activity by Indian law firms ever compiled.

Click here to view the latest standings, which are still being updated.

Submit new deals

Any individual deals for the 2018-19 time period that are not yet tallied against your firm can still be submitted until coming Wednesday (29 May 2019) by clicking the above button on each page or clicking here.

Do note to only submit deals that are fine to also be published on the Legally India website. Same goes for mentioning values of deals or other details that clients may not want to be public.

Small tweaks to the methodology are still being considered (and are linked to on the league tables microsite), but in substance:

  • Deal dates are the earlier of the first media report of a deal, the announcement date or the closing date, in that order, and as applicable.
  • M&A requires a change of control of the business.
  • Minority purchases of less than 25% of publicly traded shares are excluded, as are internal restructurings, buybacks and similar transactions.
