Allen & Overy has cemented its place as the leading adviser in leveraged finance in Europe, according to data published by Debtwire.

A&O’s European Leveraged Finance practice has been ranked number one, by value and volume, across several categories in Debtwire’s 2018 Western Europe Leveraged Loans Legal Advisors’ League Table Report, including:

  • No.1 Western Europe Borrower’s Legal Counsel
  • No. 1 Western Europe Lead Bank’s Legal Counsel
  • No. 1 Western Europe Sponsor - Backed Borrower’s Legal Counsel
  • No. 1 Western Europe Sponsor - Backed Lead Bank’s Legal Counsel

This follows on from the news that A&O’s U.S. Leveraged Finance practice ranked in the top ten, by volume, across several categories in Debtwire’s 2018 North America Leveraged Loans Legal Advisors’ League Table Report as reported here.

Head of A&O’s leveraged finance practice, Jonathan Brownson commented: “These European and U.S. results are a testament to all of the hard work put in by the whole team to make this a standout leverage finance practice.”

Key transactions that contributed to this result were A&O advising on two of 2018’s largest LBOs, Flora Food Group and TDC.

Jonathan continued: “Developing New York law loan and high yield capability alongside our existing English and local law finance practices has made us one of the few firms able to credibly advise across the full range of bond and loan structures across the key financial centres.”
