Cahill Ranked Among the Nation's Elite Law Firms by The Legal 500 2018

The Legal 500 United States has again ranked Cahill among the nation’s elite law firms in its 2018 edition, recognizing the firm in the following categories: Antitrust, Corporate Investigations and White Collar Criminal Defense, General Commercial Disputes, Securities Litigation, Capital Markets, Commercial Lending, Insurance, M&A, and Media, Technology & Telecoms. Thirty-seven individual Cahill attorneys have also been recognized in the latest edition of the guide.

Cahill’s high-yield debt practice is again the sole tier-one firm ranked in the 2018 edition, describing the firm as a “head and shoulders above the rest” with “key experience in major deals."  Cahill was also ranked in the top firms for debt and equity offerings. 

The Legal 500 recognizes Cahill’s commercial lending practice as tier-one. With respect to middle-market M&A (under $500 million), Cahill was also ranked tier-one among the top eight firms nationally.

The 2018 edition describes Cahill’s practice of Corporate Investigations and White-Collar Defense and Securities Litigation: Defense as “masterly.” 

Within the Insurance: Advice to Insurers practice group, Cahill was ranked as a tier-two firm. The experienced team is recognized as having “a very good understanding of the insurance industry” with a “focused approach to doing business.”

The firm’s Washington, D.C. office was recommended for its regulatory and transactional work within Media, Technology and Telecoms.

Now in its 31st year, The Legal 500 United States is an independent guide that surveys and interviews over 250,000 corporate counsel annually. Firms and individuals are recommended purely on merit. It designs its rankings to truly reflect the needs of corporate counsel by focusing on the strength and depth of the teams (practice and associates) rather than simply individual partners.
