Surprising to see Blair on the lower tier of that list, considering how strong they seem to be in other groups. Is it an issue of general deal flow?

Blair is definetely a player in the MM, typical EV of $100-500mm and a few $1B+ mandates.

From talking to people in competitor firms, sounds like a lot of Blair's consumer deals were capital market oriented instead of M&A

Not true - have several WB Consumer Books on my desk and creds point to heavy M&A. Check their site: Ranir / Perrigo, Team Tech / Clearlake, Ferrara / Ferrero, PDC / CVC.

MS, GS and BAML are on basically every IPO. Mega M&A deals are all Centerview. Piper has a strong fitness banking practice (like orangetheory, etc) and consumer products. North Point Advisors is a pretty good M&A boutique (seen BBs lose to them).

EVR's on the list because they poached roughly half of Barclays' CRG senior bankers in 2018, lol.

Mega/Large Cap: Centerview New Age Food & Beverage: HL & Piper Jaffray New Age Consumer: Not sure that anyone dominates all verticals, though Piper strong here as wellBBs with a generally strong presence: GS, MS, BAMLMMs with a generally strong presence: Jefferies, HW, Blair, Baird, Lincoln (LMM)

Most of the shops will be strong in one or two verticals (F&B, restaurants, retail, consumer products, household products, etc.) and very few are strong across the board

Centerview for best overall large deals, HL & Piper Jaffray for Growth Oriented deals
