High Yield

Allen & Overy has one of the pre-eminent high yield practices in Europe and has been involved in the European high yield market since its inception.

Our lawyers have led many of the deals that have shaped and continue to influence the direction of the European high yield market. Our high yield practice is comprised of seven partners and 25 associates, making us one of the largest high yield teams in Europe.

We combine our high yield practice with our market-leading practices in banking, debt capital markets, corporate, private equity and restructuring. In addition, we are supported by an integrated global network of top tier specialists in tax, regulatory, environmental, employment, real estate and other areas that touch high yield. This makes us one of very few law firms that can cover all aspects of complicated high yield and leveraged finance transactions.

Our integrated leveraged finance team can service all requirements in relation to bank/bond financings and advises on high yield bond offerings, leveraged loans, bridge-to-bond financings, debt buy-backs and restructurings. Through close collaboration we remain at the forefront of legal innovation.
