Covington & Burling and TriLegal emerged as the top mergers and acquisitions (M&A) advisers in the Asia-Pacific region for the first quarter (Q1) of 2024, according to a report by GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

Covington & Burling secured the top spot by deal value, advising on $6bn worth of mergers and acquisitions. This success can be largely attributed to their involvement in the high-profile $5.7bn Renesas-Altium deal.

TriLegal, on the other hand, dominated by deal volume, advising on a total of 15 transactions in Q1.

Aurojyoti Bose, Lead Analyst at GlobalData, commented: “TriLegal was the only legal adviser with double-digit deal volume during Q1 2024 and apart from leading by volume, it also occupied the ninth position by value during the quarter.

“Meanwhile, Covington & Burling topped the table in terms of value by advising on only two deals. The involvement in $5.7 billion Renesas–Altium M&A deal played a pivotal role for Covington & Burling in securing the top position by value.”

Following Covington & Burling in the value rankings were Herbert Smith Freehills in second with $6bn worth of deals, followed by DLA Piper with $6bn, King & Wood Mallesons with $5.8bn and Nagashima Ohno & Tsunematsu with $5.7bn.
