This section covers advice provided to borrowers, sponsors and lenders. Chambers UK considers a broad array of banking work for its purposes, with areas looked at including acquisition finance, syndicated lending, leveraged finance, Islamic finance and refinancings, among a broad range of legal issues.
In London, firms are ranked in Mid-Market or High-End tables for their work for Borrowers and Lenders (A deal with a value of less than £500 million will be considered mid-market). We also rank firms for their work representing sponsors, as well as recognising individuals for their Islamic Finance expertise.
The law firms and lawyers ranked in this section are among the best in London for banking work. They will regularly represent traditional banks, alternative lenders and challenger banks on the lender side, as well as public and private companies as borrowers. The sponsor table recognises those firms that advise the leading private equity firms on leveraged buy outs.
