Financial Times recognizes the firm’s strengths across metrics that assess legal industry leadership and strategic growth.
Consistently ranked as one of the world’s leading banking practices, Latham advises financial institutions, direct lenders, private equity sponsors, and corporate borrowers, on hundreds of financings valued at hundreds of billions of dollars each year.
Because of the scope and sophistication of our practice — in every key market, with every structure, and on every type of deal — we regularly top the legal advisor league tables. Latham’s early pioneering work in the rapidly growing direct lending market allows us to deliver insightful, seasoned counsel to direct lenders and their borrowers on their most important transactions. Working in tandem with our market-leading capital markets, M&A, and restructuring colleagues, we develop innovative structures and facilitate efficient dealmaking.
Latham’s exceptional understanding of the sponsor market and ability to both spot and set trends have earned us a reputation as uniquely positioned to advise both lenders and borrowers on leveraged and acquisition finance. We advise major players on their most complex and important financings, across all industries and in both the syndicated and direct lending markets.
Because of our broad practice and global presence, we seamlessly manage complicated cross-border deals that require nuanced commercial insight and dealmaking experience. Latham banking lawyers deliver both local law and global perspectives in order to structure and execute clients’ financings across the full spectrum of the market, anywhere in the world.
