Simpson Thacher’s banking practice is among the best banking practices, as recently evidenced by its top ranking by Chambers and Partners.
Our banking practice has handled transactions involving JPMorgan, Lehman Brothers, CIBC, Wachovia and UBS/Warburg, as well as matters for our exceptional base of financial sponsor and other corporate relationship. Particular areas of emphasis include leveraged finance, acquisition finance, project and energy finance, financial institution (including hedge fund and CDO) lending, sports financing and media and entertainment financing.
Recently, we have established a high quality English law practice in London, have better integrated our banking and securities practices to serve the increasingly unified debt platforms of our clients and have bolstered our restructuring practice to complement and support our banking practice. With a substantial infrastructure of bank regulatory, real estate, environmental, intellectual property and UCC expertise and access to the Firm’s substantial M&A, tax, litigation and asset-backed practices, our banking practice is able to handle efficiently and knowledgeably the day-to-day, and the unusual, requirements of our demanding clients. The Firm’s collegial style and its teamwork orientation match well with the project team approach used by most of our arranger and borrower clients.
