"This year has been great from a production standpoint. While the usual players were keen to make moves in this optimum deal environment, we've also seen new entrants into the financial services M&A market looking to add to their offerings by taking advantage of ideal market conditions," said partner Michael Darby who focuses his practice on financial services M&A.
