Megan Gates Named Top Woman Dealmaker Third Year In A Row

BOSTON – Mintz’s Megan Gates, Chair of the Corporate & Securities Practice and Co-chair of the firm’s Securities & Capital Markets Practice, has been named a 2023 ‘Top Woman In Dealmaking’ as part of The Deal’s annual list. This is the third time Ms Gates has been recognized in this prestigious list. 

The Deal recognizes women attorneys “who are making an impact in the dealmaking community by advising on the most important transactions of the year and taking a leadership role in promoting change.” Ms Gates was included in the 2021 and 2022 lists. 

Ms Gates guides public companies through structuring and implementing capital-raising transactions, SEC reporting compliance and corporate governance obligations, and strategic mergers and acquisitions. With a specific passion for the life sciences industry, Megan has over 25 years of experience in the biotechnology field. Her counseling is directly informed by a client-focused perspective she gained during a prior in-house counsel role with a global laboratory and analytical instrument maker.

Focused on emerging and regulated industries, particularly life sciences and health care, financial services, technology and communications, and energy and sustainability, attorneys in Mintz’s Corporate Practice boast extensive experience in all stages of the capital-raising process – from start-up and venture capital funding, to initial public offerings, to continuing debt and equity finance needs, including private placements and public offerings. The firm’s transactional attorneys advise clients on how to keep their business healthy by working to structure transformative licensing or partnership arrangements, and, when the time is right, assist in growing clients via mergers and acquisitions.
