The Big Four firm success was based on the number of deals it advised on as well as the number of partners and staff dedicated to private equity, as part of its corporate finance offering.
Deloitte advised on 74 MBOs in Europe with a combined value of &eur;10bn (£6.65bn). The firm’s overall private equity work climbed by 20% from 2002.
David Carson, partner with Deloitte, said: ‘We are extremely pleased with Deloitte’s performance in winning this prestigious European award. Our success is the result of our dedicated team who specialise in helping investors achieving the best value from a transaction.’
