Everyone loves lists.
Fortunately, given PitchBook’s trove of private equity, venture capital and M&A coverage, we’ve been able to assemble the most comprehensive rankings of PE, VC, advisors and law firms in 2016. From the most active venture firms in the Great Lakes to the most prolific advisors on PE- or VC-backed IPOs, find out which firms are atop the lists.
As you peruse the League Tables report—sponsored by Donnelley Financial Solutions—it’s interesting to pinpoint specific firms that helped drive trends throughout last year, such as the most active PE investors in the IT sector or the top five VCs at the late stage.
Seth Klarman: Investors Can No Longer Rely On Mean Reversion

How does your firm stack up?
Each year, we seek to refresh our approach when it comes to providing the most comprehensive rankings of private equity and venture capital firms’ activity, as well as affiliated service providers. Accordingly, we’ve decided to remove redundancies by adding rankings of the most active advisors and law firms in general mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity to the following pages, as well as making the PitchBook Global League Tables a quarterly publication. That way we can not only house all the essential rankings from the most active law firms by regions to investment banks by deal type in one central document for easier reference but also update it more frequently. Plus, as the Global League Tables shall typically fall at the end of the first month in a given quarter, there is ample
time allowed for all firms to get in touch with us to ensure that their placement is accurately represented. To that end, if you wish to contact us regarding this specific report, please contact us at [email protected], but if you wish instead to inquire as to our general survey process, please send your questions to [email protected]
