The Best Friends group finishes the year 2020 leading the European M&A league tables by both volume and value, acting in 220 deals valued at USD 248,7 bn.
The Best Friends joined forces on many matters over the past year. For instance, we had the pleasure of working alongside Slaughter and May on advising Takeaway.com on its merger with Just Eat and the acquisition of Grubhub, and together with Hengeler Mueller, we advised private equity firm Parcom on their acquisition of Group of Butchers. The Best Friends group is a network of renowned European law firms, all market leaders in their jurisdictions: Slaughter and May (UK), Bredin Prat (France), BonelliErede (Italy), Hengeler Mueller (Germany) and Uría Menéndez (Spain).
