More than 320 senior dealmakers from top investment banks and law firms across Europe were gathered at Banqueting House in London on 6 December to recognize the achievements of advanced advisory services on transformative deals and complex transactions over the last year.

"Being at the heart of some of the most exciting and sophisticated deals in the region is a privilege that we owe to our clients," comments Raimonds Slaidins, senior partner in the Ellex M&A practice group. "We see this as an acknowledgement of the work we've put in to develop a great pan-Baltic team of lawyers with cross-border expertise in M&A, Corporate, Capital Markets, Finance and Competition," he adds.

Ellex advised on a broad range of headline transactions over the past year, including Blackstone acquiring Luminor, Eesti Energia acquiring Nelja Energia, Novalpina acquiring Olympic Entertainment Group, ESE Group sale of shopping centre Ozas to NEPI Rockcastle, NCH Capital sale of Groglass, and Eastnine AB acquisition of Alojas Biznesa Centrs.

The recognition by Mergermarket further highlights Ellex's award-winning performance during 2018: earlier this year Ellex received the recognition as best Baltic law firm at Chambers Europe 2018 Awards for Excellence as well as The Lawyer 2018 Awards and was also recognized as the only Baltic Law firm in the Financial Times TOP 50 Most Innovative Lawyers report.
