Buyouts Magazine has awarded Goodwin Procter its coveted "Law Firm of the Year" award, which recognizes the most outstanding law firm serving the buyout industry. Goodwin Procter was chosen based on its experience in traditional leveraged buyouts as well as in the expanding growth equity sector, and in reflection of the practice's robust expansion in the new markets, organically and through the addition of lateral partners.
Buyouts announced the winner at its third annual awards dinner at the Grand Hyatt in New York City on March 26.
Goodwin Procter's Private Equity Practice focuses on buyouts, recapitalizations and portfolio company transactions, representing both single investors and "clubs." The firm has a team of over 100 attorneys who specialize in buyouts, growth equity transactions and other private equity investments and M&A transactions throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia. In 2008, Private Equity Analyst ranked Goodwin Procter the second most active law firm in the country for buyout deals (based on volume). Goodwin Procter is also ranked by Chambers USA as one of the elite private equity practices in the United States.
