Allen & Overy the 2011 leading debt capital markets law firm


Analysis of Thomson Reuters' data on global debt, equity and equity related issuance suggests that Allen & Overy leads the market by a substantial margin, particularly on the manager side, where there are over 200 deals (57%) between Allen & Overy and the next highest ranking firm.

Allen & Overy also showed its prominence in the EMEA region where it topped the issuer and manager adviser tables for all international bonds and international securitisations.

Capital markets partner Philip Smith commented: "2011 was a mixed year for the international capital markets, with periods of intense activity alternating with calmer phases. We saw a tendency to denominate bonds in currencies other than the euro, in particular U.S. dollars, swiss francs and renminbi, due to the effects of the eurozone sovereign debt crisis."
