Davis Polk advised on nearly 100 deals totaling over $217 billion in 2015, ranking the firm in the Top 5 in half of the 2015 Thomson Reuters LPC categories, including 1st in Overall Acquisition Volume and Lender-Side Acquisition Volume.
Although our credit practice is principally based in New York City, we also are retained for transactions with parties in Europe, Asia and Latin America. With the increasing convergence of the worldwide financial market, we have filled a critical role in helping our U.S. and international bank clients understand the global legal landscape, including competing insolvency regimes and out of court restructuring practices, different market conventions, intercreditor concerns, issues relating to obtaining credit and collateral support, and other matters that make the difference in obtaining syndicated credit or high-yield financing for complex multinational enterprises.
