JONATHAN SCHLOSBERG IS SOUTH AFRICA’S LEADING LAWYER FOR MERGER & ACQUISITION LEGAL EXPERTISE
The International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers
EMBARGOED UNTIL 18 FEBRUARY 2005
Jonathan Schlosberg is South Africa’s leading lawyer for Merger & Acquisition legal expertise
Jonathan Schlosberg of Bowman Gilfillan Inc is the number one practitioner in South Africa for M&A legal expertise, according to the fifth edition of The International Who’s Who of Merger & Acquisition Lawyers published by Who’s Who Legal this February.
Mr Schlosberg received more nominations from clients and peers in the course of the research than any other M&A practitioner in the country and was described as “first class” and “the top guy for M&A work in South Africa”. The book is a result of six months of independent research incorporating feedback from lawyers and in-house counsel, and covers 312 lawyers in 50 separate jurisdictions.
Managing Editor Callum Campbell said, “It is impossible to buy entry into this publication, only those lawyers who receive sufficient nominations from their peers are included. This book represents a truly global, highly qualitative survey of only the best M&A lawyers, based on exhaustive research.”
The fifth edition of The International Who’s Who of M&A Lawyers will be included in the 2005 edition of The International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers, a compendium volume of all 25 practice areas covered by Who’s Who Legal’s separate single volume publications.
The information is also available without charge on WhosWhoLegal.com and is updated on a daily basis.

Notes to Editors:
· Research is conducted through conversations with private practice lawyers of repute in the practice area in question and in related fields, as well as with general counsel.
· Subsequent telephone and face-to-face interviews are conducted internationally to permit the refining of the listing to a selection of between 100 and 400 lawyers who, by general agreement, are considered the pre-eminent lawyers in the field
· The Who’s Who Legal series acts as a reference source for purchasers of legal services seeking to corroborate the reputations of expert lawyers recommended to them by another party
· Who’s Who Legal aims to reduce the short-term costs incurred in finding a lawyer, but more significantly, to minimise the transactional expense and risk of receiving poor counsel
