"M&A remains crucial for companies seeking to capture new opportunities and extract value in a market that is rapidly changing," commented Leif Zierz, KPMG's Global Head of Deal Advisory. "In this new environment, KPMG's position in the league tables is market recognition of our member firms' ability to combine deep sector knowledge, breadth of services and an integrated global network into a holistic offering that continuously delivers value for our clients."
