On July 3, 2007, Thomson Financial released its Second Quarter 2007 M&A Legal Advisory Review.

Fasken Martineau was credited with advising on 52 Canadian M&A deals announced in the first half of 2007 with an aggregate value of approximately $50.5 billion, giving it a 5th place ranking among all law firms globally in terms of value, and a second place ranking among Canadian law firms. This was an impressive jump from the same period last year, when the firm ranked 16th overall, having advised on $6.5 billion worth of deals.

Announced league tables include all deals that were announced from January 1 through June 30, 2007 and of which Thomson Financial was made aware. Thomson Financial is the leading global provider of integrated information-based solutions to business and professional customers.
