McGuireWoods ranked among the top five law firms for global and U.S. M&A and top 10 for middle-market private equity throughout the first half of 2018 in authoritative league tables published by Thomson Reuters and Bloomberg. The firm was also nationally recognized by Legal 500 for private equity buyouts, noting that “McGuireWoods has further cemented its presence in middle-market private equity, particularly in the healthcare, food and beverage, and energy industries.
