A&O’s leading position in the global corporate lending market confirmed by Thomson Reuters

11 February 2016

Allen & Overy’s dominant position in the global corporate lending market has been confirmed by Thomson Reuters’ FY2015 Global Syndicated Loans League Tables.

In EMEA, A&O is ranked number one legal adviser for both borrowers and lenders for deal volume for the fifth successive year.

In Asia Pacific and Japan, we rank in the top three firms for borrowers and lenders for deal value.

Our results in EMEA are reinforced by Bloomberg’s syndicated loans league tables, which also rank us top for both borrowers and lenders by deal volume.

“Our achievement in this very competitive climate signifies the continued confidence that both borrowers and lenders have in Allen & Overy, and demonstrates why we are the standout firm in the market,” said Trevor Borthwick, Global Head of Corporate Lending. “Our experience advising both borrowers and lenders gives us a 360 degree view of the market and a unique understanding of the bankability of deal terms.”

2015 was an unprecedented year for A&O, with ‘super-jumbo’ loans, like the USD75bn financing to support the Anheuser-Busch InBev bid for SAB Miller and the financing of Royal Dutch Shell’s purchase of BG Group (on both of which we advised the lenders) dominating the global corporate lending market.
