Date: 05/30/17

Cahill has been recognized by Chambers USA 2017 as a leading law firm in a range of transactional, regulatory and litigation practice categories, including band 1 rankings for High Yield Debt, Banking & Finance, Insurance and Media Litigation. Over a third of Cahill's partners have been ranked as leading lawyers in their field(s) of practice.

Cahill ranked as the sole Band 1-ranked firm nationally in Capital Markets: High Yield Products for the sixth consecutive year; backed in part by client and market feedback that the practice is “a high-yield debt powerhouse” with one source describing Cahill as “the be-all and end-all of high-yield.”   Cahill also ranked among the leading Debt & Equity practices nationally, with market sources commenting on Cahill’s “peerless strength in high-yield offerings and extensive expertise in some of the most complex investment-grade debt matters,” and “growing equity division.”

Within the Banking & Finance category, Chambers USA  ranked Cahill in band 1 nationally noting its “market-leading practice” that is known for offering “seamless coordination between its capital markets and leveraged finance partners” and citing sources as commenting “They are hands-down the best firm I work with. Their attorneys can do both loans and securities, which differentiates them.”

Also on the transactional side, Cahill ranked among the leading environmental practices in New York for advising on "health and safety concerns, environmental compliance, and risk management,” citing “commentators are impressed with the efficiency of the group and its effectiveness in seeing deals through to completion.”

Chambers USA ranked Cahill’s Insurance Litigation practice nationally and as one of the two top practices in New York, reporting that Cahill “Provides superb reinsurance expertise, including deep knowledge of Bermuda Form arbitrations” and “an impressive capacity for undertaking class action defense,” quoting sources as commenting that the firm is “preeminent in coverage litigation.”

On the litigation side, Cahill again ranked among New York’s “Elite” firms for Commercial Litigation for the ninth consecutive year, being described as “well equipped to handle major commercial and criminal defense proceedings”  and ranked among the leading firms for Securities Litigation and White Collar Crime & Government Investigations in New York. These rankings are backed in part by commentary that Cahill is “absolutely a firm that can deliver on large-scale investigations” and that Cahill is a “first-rate firm with excellent advisors.” One client was cited the firm as "fantastic," highlighting Cahill’s efficient approach to staffing as a particular asset: “They come in and just get it from the start, proposing a lean and mean team.”

Cahill’s First Amendment practice is ranked among the top three in New York, noting that Cahill “Enjoys an outstanding reputation in the First Amendment space” and “excels in libel and defamation cases.”
