DFDL Listed in Asian Legal Business’ M&A Rankings 2013

We are pleased to announce that DFDL has been ranked Tier 2 in Vietnam and as a Firm to Watch in Thailand in Asian Legal Business M&A Rankings 2013.

These rankings reflect the volume, complexity and size of DFDL’s M&A practice in the region, as well as our presence in Asia, visibility and profile within the marketplace.

The M&A market in Southeast Asia is expected to expand over the next 12 months, in terms of number and value of deals. Sustained steady growth rates, low costs, and a growing middle class all serve as catalysts for future deal flow. Myanmar’s transition from decades of military rule to a gradually democratic economy has also stimulated deals in the region.

Japanese and South Korean conglomerates, faced with challenging demographic outlooks and domestic opportunities, are increasingly looking to Southeast Asia as an attractive M&A destination.

The Heineken’s USD 4.6 billion acquisition of Singaporean conglomerate Fraser and Neave’s stake in Asia Pacific Breweries was highlighted in ALB’s article accompanying the rankings. This deal was noted for its scale, complexity and fierce competition between bidders.

Congratulations to the Regional M&A Practice Group for this well-deserved recognition of their expertise, effort, and success.
