Prosek advised on over 200 Global M&A Transactions valued at over $116 billion
New York – February 7, 2023 – Prosek Partners (“Prosek” or “the firm”), a leading integrated global marketing and communications firm, has ranked fourth globally in deal volume and fifth in deal value in Mergermarket’s 2022 Global PR Advisors League Tables rankings. In 2022, Prosek advised on 204 global M&A transactions valued at over $116 billion, with 190 deals valued at over $100 billion in the Americas specifically, landing the firm in third place for deal volume and in fifth place for deal value.
“This year’s ranking reflects the expanding desire from our clients, in particular those within the private markets sector, to partner with a truly integrated communications firm to handle their most complex transactions,” commented Brian Schaffer, Partner, Prosek Partners. “From finalizing the deal announcement, to working through the close and post-deal integration, leveraging proactive branding, PR and digital capabilities, Prosek’s end-to-end offering is a powerful competitive differentiator.”
The firm’s Special Situations team advised on a variety of cross-border transactions spanning the private and public markets, touching all sectors, including several of the largest deals within the Private Equity sector. Many of these deals included shareholder activism and litigation components, as well as complex internal stakeholder elements.
“Amidst the volatile economic backdrop that permeated the second half of 2022, our Special Situations practice, and firm as a whole, was able to deepen relationships with existing and new clients and legal and financial advisors, extending our practice area and positioning it for continued success in the future,” added Jen Prosek, Managing Partner, Prosek Partners. “After years of steadily moving up the league tables, where we are also ranked #1 in PE deals according to The Deal, we are thrilled to earn our top ranking on Mergermarket’s global M&A list.”
Mergermarket results complement Prosek’s recent M&A rankings in The Deal, where the firm was ranked #6 for Global M&A and #1 for PE, as well as reflect recent Bloomberg Activism rankings, where the firm ranked #1 for Investment Fund defense, #2 in Europe and Asia for offense, #4 globally and in the US for offense, #9 globally for defense, and #8 in the US for defense.
