A flurry of deals to close 2017 with an active pipeline to start 2018

O’Melveny’s corporate team ushered in a flurry of deals by the close of 2017, confirming our place among the most active firms in Mergermarket’s and Bloomberg’s year-end league tables. Our achievements for clients in the fourth quarter of 2017 span different sectors and regions and include:

Our goal, as noted in the IFLR1000 (2017) referral guide, is to “go well beyond negotiating and structuring deals to add tangible business value.” We recently secured, for example, an industry-shaping order from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that will lighten the regulatory burden on renewable energy project sponsors and their equity investors, a major win for firm clients investing in that sector.

We also continue to expand our pro bono collaborations. Our recent work included representing the Rainforest Alliance in a merger with Dutch NGO coffee and cocoa certifier UTZ to create the world’s largest conservation organization dedicated to the certification of sustainably sourced forestry and agricultural products around the globe; the new organization will have more than 500 employees in 78 countries.

We start the new year with a thriving pipeline of deals and more good news to come. Stay tuned.
