Much Shelist has been recognized as one of the most active law firms for venture capital transactions in 2016 by PitchBook, the leading source for data on M&A, private equity and venture capital deal activity. The firm logged the second-highest deal count in the Great Lakes region and was ranked nationally for early-stage activity and for its deal volume in the software sector. “We are honored to be recognized by PitchBook as one of the most active firms in the Great Lakes region for the second consecutive year,” said Greg Grove, Chair of the firm’s Venture Capital & Emerging Growth Companies Group. “We anticipate that our 2016 national rankings are due in part to the increasing deal activity in the Midwest.” PitchBook's 2016 Annual Global League Tables report is the industry’s comprehensive ranking of private equity and venture capital activity worldwide for the year as a whole.
