The Legal 500 Recognizes Cahill as One of the Nation’s Top Law Firms

Cahill is proud to announce that The Legal 500 United States has once again ranked the Firm among the nation’s elite law firms as part of its 2020 guide. The Legal 500 recognized Cahill as leading law firm in: Antitrust Civil Litigation/Class Action Defense; Antitrust Merger Control; Corporate Investigations & White Collar Defense; General Commercial Disputes; Securities Litigation Defense; Capital Markets representation across Debt, Equity Offerings, and High-Yield; Commercial Lending (Advice to Lenders); Insurance (Advice to Insurers); Environmental (Transactional); Middle-Market M&A; and Media, Technology and Telecoms for both Regulatory and Transactional matters. Additionally, thirty-four individual Cahill attorneys were recommended by The Legal 500.

For another consecutive year, Cahill’s high-yield debt practice was recognized as the sole tier-one ranked firm. Testimonials published by The Legal 500 in the 2020 guide remark that “Cahill wins the lion’s share of advisory work for managers in the high-yield space” and the Firm’s “volume and market position are indisputable.” Cahill was also ranked as a top firm for debt and equity offerings. The Legal 500  recognized Cahill’s commercial lending practice as tier-one as well, with a client describing Cahill as the “best law firm for practical advice and business acumen.”

With respect to middle-market M&A, for the 13th straight year Cahill was ranked tier-one among elite firms nationally. “They take an interest in the business goals of a transaction and vigorously focus on collaborating with a client to achieve those goals,” a party reported to The Legal 500. Acting for buyers, sellers and investors in mid-market M&A, strategic transactions and public and private financings, including leveraged loans, high-yield debt transactions and mezzanine financing, one client explained that “Cahill provides a personal touch that I don’t receive at other law firms.”

In another tier-one ranking, Cahill’s award-winning securities litigation practice earned the exemplary distinction for the 2020 guide as well. The Legal 500 noted the group’s “strong bench of talent,” regarding Cahill “as one of the leading firms for the representation of underwriters in securities litigation.” The publication also highlighted that the “practice includes former traders and research analysts who have first-hand experience in the industry.”
