Date: 05/27/16

Cahill has been recognized by Chambers USA 2016 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 fifth consecutive year, backed in part by client and market feedback that the practice is “the gold standard in the high-yield space.” 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.”

In Banking & Finance, Cahill ranked among the top four practices nationally for its “market-leading practice” that is known for having “a deep bench and broad industry knowledge,” backed in part by clients who commented “the quality of the work is second to none.” 

Also on the transactional side, Cahill ranked among the leading environmental practices for advising on "environmental compliance, risk management and disclosure in a range of transactions,” citing clients who said “They are very thoughtful and very responsive,” and “a great team.” 

On the litigation side, Cahill again ranked among New York’s “Elite” firms for Commercial Litigation for the eighth consecutive year, being described as a “distinguished firm, well equipped to handle major commercial and criminal defense litigation” 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 has a “Notable bench of securities litigators whose experience includes defending marquee clients against matters such as rate-fixing allegations and RMBS litigation,” and clients who commented “They are very strong, with a deep bench of talented lawyers.” and that “Cahill has consistently achieved some of the best results for us. They are extremely skillful. ”

Cahill again ranked among the two leading Insurance Litigation practices in New York and top five nationally, based in part on “superb reinsurance expertise, including deep knowledge of Bermuda form arbitrations, alongside an impressive capacity for undertaking class action defense and coverage litigation on behalf of major domestic insurers and financial institutions,” and clients who commented Cahill’s team “provides excellent value and quality.”

Cahill’s First Amendment practice is ranked among the top two in New York, noting that Cahill is “frequently called upon to file amicus briefs and act as advisers in many of the country's largest cases,” and cited clients who commented, “If you have a complex matter, they are really excellent.”

Cahill was also ranked among the leading firms for Telecom, Broadcast & Satellite practices in Washington, D.C., with a team that is “known for its work with leading communications companies and groups in the financial sector,” and that “Regularly undertakes work in a wide range of areas including regulatory, litigation, and corporate finance.”
