Sullivan & Cromwell Recognized as Best Capital Markets Practice by Law360February 06, 2020 READ MORE
Sullivan & Cromwell has been recognized as one of Law360’s Capital Markets Practice Groups of the Year for 2019. The annual awards recognize top law firms for their work on deals or litigation that are notable for their size, complexity or significance.
With a depth of experience that stretches back to the preparation of the first major registration statement under federal securities laws, S&C’s role in the development of global capital markets is unmatched. The Firm’s Capital Markets team is especially adept at handling complex issues that arise in the largest and most significant capital raisings.
This wealth of knowledge has created a culture of thought leadership. As Cathy Clarkin, co-head of the Firm’s Capital Markets Group told Law360, “We're always following what's happening. We're writing about it, we're publishing about it,” adding that the group’s unmatched experience allows it “to deliver high-quality legal advice in a very efficient manner.”
Last year’s highlights for the Capital Markets Group include:
- Guiding Softbank through Japan’s largest initial public offering and the third-largest IPO of all time.
- Working as a global team to successfully execute Budweiser Brewing APAC’s $5.75 billion global offering and listing of shares, Hong Kong's second highest-value IPO last year.
- Serving as designated underwriters’ counsel for longtime client AT&T on over $30 billion in debt capital markets transactions.
