February 24, 2016

Gunderson Dettmer, a leading business and technology law firm, announced today that it has again been ranked the most active venture capital law firm globally. The ranking – based on publicly disclosed venture capital financings and published by PitchBook – reports that the firm completed nearly twice as many transactions as its nearest competitor. PitchBook also ranked Gunderson most active in early and late-stage venture capital financings and most active in the software, media, commercial services, consumer goods, and IT hardware industries.

“We’re thrilled with the rankings and PitchBook’s confirmation of our leadership in this highly competitive market. We’ve been fortunate to receive similar rankings in the past, and we especially appreciate PitchBook’s rankings, which are among the most transparent and data-driven,” said Scott Dettmer, a founding partner of the firm and head of the firm’s corporate group. “Our organization is focused entirely on the needs of the entrepreneurs and investors building new, innovative companies, and we believe our worldwide activity levels are reflective of that commitment and excitement.”
