With a total disclosed deal value of over US$3.3bn (over US$1bn more than second listed firm), Watson, Farley & Williams (WFW) was rated as having achieved a 24% market share in the Bloomberg Clean Energy League Table for Asset Finance in Q3 2011.

Bloomberg said “Watson, Farley & Williams achieves the top spot in the legal advisor table, largely due to its involvement in two very large deals, Meerwind Sud und Ost Offshore Wind Farm Phase 1 (US$1.76bn) and joint advisory on the Global Tech 1 Offshore Wind Farm deal (US$1.38bn)… [WFW] also advised on the Q-Cells & LKD Finsterwalde I PV Project Acquisition (US$170m).”

Evan Stergoulis, partner and head of Energy at Watson, Farley & Williams said: “This is a significant achievement for the firm and testament to our superb team.
