The Deal has compiled its 2007 league table on PR M&A business, and they put Joele Frank, Wilkinson Brimmer Katcher on top with 79 deals versus Kekst, the perennial top dog, which they tally at 76 deals. This is slightly different from the findings we reported from mergermarket, which puts Kekst on top of the list for both value and volume. However, the difference might be based on what the two were measuring. Mergermarket looked at the number of deals in North American M&A (along with the dollar amount associated with them). The Deal is just looking at the number of US deals.
