I've noticed how SVB Leerink has been on a tear with healthcare and their newly-formed tech team in the past few months.

On the tech side, they announced this morning that they are advising on the $5.4b sale of Quest Software to Clearlake Capital.

This makes me wonder if SVB Leerink is now, or possibly in the future, considered an Elite Boutique in the tech and/or healthcare sectors?
