A Cahill team from New York and London represented the lead arrangers in connection with credit facilities to support Caesars Entertainment’s bid to acquire William Hill PLC. The Cahill team on the financing is led by New York partner William Miller supported by Alex Petrossian, Matthew Rosenthal and Samuel Esclavon and London partner Jonathan Brownson supported by Marcus Chaplin.

The acquisition will bring together Caesars as one of the largest gaming-entertainment companies in the U.S. and one of the world's most diversified gaming entertainment provisions, and William Hill as one of the world's leading betting and gambling companies. The acquisition is subject to antitrust and regulatory approvals and is expected to close in the second half of 2021.
