I recently graduated and moved across the country for a change. I've been working on networking out here, and I've actually met a lot of individuals in commercial banking.

Some of the people I've met in line based lending have been complaining about their regional clients being acquired. I know by the size of the deals they must be represented by MM or boutique firms in the region.

What's the best way to figure out who did the advising and valuation for either the buy side or sell side firm?

    Cap IQ (if you have access to it) will get you part of the way there. Apart from that, you may have to look at press releases - if the advisors aren't listed on the target/acquiror's press releases, then get a feel for who the main banks are in your region, but of course, if your question was more along the lines of "who are these players" to begin with, then that wouldn't really help too much.
