Bell Gully has been recognised as a market leader in Bloomberg's latest Global M&A Market Review, ranking in the top 20 firms across the Australasian market.
Following the firm's two recent multibillion dollar transactions, Bell Gully was ranked as the top New Zealand firm by Bloomberg in announced M&A deals (by volume) in the first half of 2019. Bell Gully was also ranked in the top 20 Australasian firms in Mergermarket's Asia Pacific Advisory League Tables over the same period.
These strong rankings are underpinned by numerous transactions that position Bell Gully as the “go-to" firm for international clients. These include advising Vodafone Group Plc on its sale of Vodafone New Zealand Limited to Infratil and Brookfield Asset Management Limited for NZD$3.4 billion - making it one of the largest New Zealand M&A transactions on record, and advising Apax Partners LLP on its takeover of Trade Me for NZ$2.56 billion – the largest scheme of arrangement in NZ to date.
