Rankings & Recognition

Cahill Ranked by IFLR1000 as Top Tier Law Firm in Capital Markets and Bank Lending

Date: 10/17/11

Cahill's corporate finance practice has earned top-tier rankings by Euromoney in the 22nd Edition of the IFLR1000 - The Guide to the World's Leading Financial Law Firms. In the US market, the firm earned high rankings in Bank Lending and Capital markets: Debt and Equity categories, including the sole Tier one ranking in the high yield debt category. Cahill was also ranked among the top five law firms in the UK high yield debt market.

The IFLR1000 praised Cahill for its work in high profile deals such as the 2011 buyout of Del Monte Foods, the IPO of HCA, Inc. and the acquisition of Tomkins by Onex and the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, noting that the firm is " ...far and away the market leader in terms of volume and deals," and added that Cahill has "created a niche for itself in acquisition transactions featuring debt financing, resulting in what one rival characterizes as "a force to be reckoned with."

Partners Jim Clark, Bill Hartnett, Doug Horowitz, Jim Robinson, Jonathan Schaffzin, Susanna Suh, Corey Wright and Dan Zubkoff were named as leading lawyers.
