We are delighted to announce the 500 Leading Dealmakers in America for 2022.

So many deals, so little time. These are the advisors that lit up the economy with an avalanche of dealmaking over the past year – from IPOs and transportation mergers to distressed finance and life sciences funding.

While New York continues to boast (far and away) the balance of the nation’s top corporate lawyers, represented as well are Florida high-flyers and Texas titans, Midwest powerbrokers and Silicon Valley savants alongside Delaware dynamos, Boston advisors and D.C. leaders. Top dealmakers work at top firms, and our guide reflects that, with the following topping our charts: Wachtel; Paul Weiss; Cravath; Kirkland; Skadden; Latham; Gibson Dunn; Sullivan & Cromwell; and Simpson Thacher, including former firm chair William Dougherty. 

Others in double digits are Winston, which continues to amass top talent at a remarkable rate; Davis Polk; Debevoise; White & Case; Weil; Sidley; Vinson & Elkins; and Freshfields.

This is our 3rd guide to the nation’s top dealmakers, which is created through a curation of submissions and original research into the lawyers leading the biggest and most impactful deals of the prior year, in particular. They are vetted by an editorial board of their peers. As an inclusive company, Lawdragon is an advocate for diversity in the legal profession. This year’s dealmakers are 33 percent women and 20 percent inclusive.

Members of the Lawdragon Hall of Fame are denoted with an asterisk.
