February 2, 2012 | Jay M. Hoffman

In its January 27th edition, the Financial Post reported that Miller Thomson earned 1st place on the list of Canadian legal advisors to the underwriters in terms of the number of both debt and equity deals completed in 2011.

When asked if the firm’s offices in smaller centres were contributors to its industry-leading deal flow, Jay Hoffman, Chair of Miller Thomson’s national Capital Markets and Securities and M&A Groups, is quoted as saying, “What we’ve been doing more broadly over the last few years is growing and strengthening our national capital markets and M&A practice through lateral hires. And we’ve been doing that while maintaining a pretty sharp focus on the middle market.”
