Despite the challenging market and impacts of COVID19, the firm continues to advise on a significant number of deals and leads its competitors by advising on nearly double the volume of deals, assisting its clients raise over $868 million.

In Western Australia, HWL Ebsworth’s corporate team was also ranked No.1 legal advisors for ECM deals, both in deal number and size, according to Business News’ mid-year Corporate Finance Report.
