London – Described by some of the judges as the «go-to» due diligence firm and «leader in this category,» Altman Solon was voted for the breadth of its work in TMT over the past year, which included over 200 diligence assignments in key segments across the sectors. The firm also unveiled the merger of parent organisations, Solon Management Consulting and Altman Vilandrie & Company, to form Altman Solon, the world’s largest strategy consulting firm focused exclusively on TMT.

The TMT M&A Awards 2020 celebrate and recognise M&A successes of the world’s leading telecom, media, and tech dealmakers, providing aspirational benchmarks for the companies nominated and world-class recognition for winners.

Ben Nice, Editorial Director, TMT Finance said: “It’s been an exceptional and challenging year in many ways – but deal flow in TMT has largely proved resilient and robust. Huge deals have been executed in difficult environments. The quality of this year’s shortlists shows that the leading TMT dealmakers have remained busy throughout, with over 135 billion dollars’ worth of deals clocked, representing some of the largest operators, investment firms, and key advisers in the sector. Congratulations to all finalists and winners.”
