Since 2011, Allen & Overy has been the clear leading legal adviser in syndicated lending for EMEA. The latest league tables published by Thomson Reuters and Bloomberg once again demonstrate our standout position.
According to data from Thomson Reuters, A&O advised both borrowers and lenders on more deals than any other law firm in 2016 and almost twice the value of deals than our nearest competitor on the borrower side. In EMEA, we advised on 65 deals on the borrower side and 122 on the lender side. This was 74 per cent and 22 per cent respectively, more than our nearest rival.
A&O’s results are reinforced by Bloomberg’s syndicated loans league tables, which also ranked us top for both borrowers and lenders by deal volume.
Head of global corporate lending, Trevor Borthwick commented: “The combination of a challenging 2016 and an ever increasing competitive market means our teams have to work harder and smarter each year to continue this annual achievement. This result signifies the continued confidence that both borrowers and lenders have in us, and demonstrates why we are the market leader. Working on such a wide variety of deals, many of which are cross-border in nature, gives us a comprehensive view of the global market and a unique understanding of the bankability of deal terms.”
