Our personal approach to M&A reflected in outstanding European league table performance

We are proud to announce that our collaborative approach and unwavering commitment to realize our clients’ ambitions has further consolidated our position among the leading advisors in the mid-market financial advisory league tables published by Thomson Reuters and Mergermarket. In Europe, Oaklins is once again among the top 10 mid-market financial advisors.

In an exciting transaction designed to capitalize on synergies, our aerospace & defense M&A specialists in France and California, supported by our Dutch team, assisted French aerospace coatings manufacturer Mapaero with its sale to AkzoNobel, a leading global paints and performance coatings company headquartered in the Netherlands.

And in a notable deal on the other side of the Atlantic, our team in Cleveland and our media specialists in New York advised on the sale of n2y, an Ohio-based provider of special education software, to Providence, a leading private equity firm focused on the media, communications, education and information industries whose sector-focused approach and industry knowledge helps build exceptional companies.

By balancing our global perspective with an understanding of local challenges and opportunities, we help companies find the best domestic and cross-border deals. This year, we continued our commitment to broadening our international expertise with the addition of new offices in India and Bulgaria.


Our drive to help our clients reach their full potential has yet again earned Oaklins a global ranking in the top 20 of both the Mergermarket and Thomson Reuters league tables.


We celebrate our clients and understand the uniqueness of their businesses. We hope to show many more evolving companies how our collaborative approach can help bridge their ambitions with world-class opportunities.
