ATLANTA – Dow Jones Private Equity Analyst has ranked Morris, Manning & Martin as a Top 50 law firm for its number of Venture Capital and Private Equity deals.
MMM was the only Atlanta-based law firm on this prestigious list, which includes other national and global firms.
The Dow Jones publication highlighted Morris, Manning & Martin’s representation of clients in 47 VC and Private Equity deals, including a transportation-focused business services company in a $27 million expansion round with multiple investors.
“The firm’s robust venture capital activity, as evidenced by our high national ranking in Dow Jones Private Equity Analyst, demonstrates that, despite adverse market conditions, we continue to be a market leader in representing companies in venture and private equity transactions,” said Managing Partner Robert E. Saudek.
Dow Jones Private Equity Analyst is a publication of Dow Jones Financial Information Services. The law firm deal rankings were published in the May issue.
