The London office of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP has been recognised in two practice areas by Chambers UK 2010. Three of the firm’s partners were also named as key individuals.
Chambers ranked Cadwalader’s Capital Markets practice as one of the top 25 U.K. firms in the newly created category of Capital Markets: Structured Finance, Securitisation & Derivatives. The publication noted that ‘the structured finance and derivatives side of this practice remains robust’. Clients also recommended the practice as ‘particularly good for structured finance, with some superb practitioners’.
Partner Angus Duncan has once again been recognised a key individual, with a client praising him as ‘a talented, smart practitioner; he’s an anchor for the team’. Partner Nick Shiren was listed as a key individual in capital markets work.
Partner Adam Blakemore entered the rankings for the first time this year, due to consistent praise from market sources. One client commented: ‘He quickly comes up with workable solutions to complex scenarios in time-pressured situations’. Adam was also noted as being strong on contentious tax issues.
“These rankings are a testament to our capabilities in London because they are a direct reflection of client perceptions,” said Christopher White, Cadwalader’s Chairman. “I’m pleased that we continue to exceed client expectations.”
