Below are the recently released Q-2 & First Half 2019 SPAC IPO Legal League Tables
The legal league tables had a few surprises in the second quarter. Notably, Winston & Strawn climbed to #1 based on total deal volume with $1.46 billion in legal assignments. To put that into context, Winston & Strawn sat out the first quarter having not participated in any SPACs, but came on strong in Q-2 to land the top spot. Overall, three of Winston's legal assignments were as Issuer's Counsel and one was as Underwriter's Counsel, with a total average deal size of $365 million.
