About our roundup

We rank the top deals of 2010

The list of mergers and acquisitions that closed in 2010 was compiled for Washington Technology by investment bank Houlihan Lokey. Deals that were announced during 2010 but not closed were not included in the roundup.

After we have the list of deals in hand, we turn it over to a panel of M&A experts, who pick the top deals according to the effects on the companies and market in addition to what the deals indicate about prevailing trends.

Feel free to comment on our choices.

Our panel of experts:

Don Blair, Raymond James
Jean Stack, Houlihan Lokey
Thomas Peltier, Stifel Nicolaus Weisel
Bob Kipps, KippsDeSanto
John Hagan, BB&T Capital Markets/Windsor Group
Craig Chason, Pillsbury Shaw Pittman

William Mutryn, Holland & Knight
Robert Rubin, Stronghold Advisors
