Cadwalader Once Again Among Leaders on CLO Arranger and Manager Counsel Tables for Q1 2021

April 22, 2021

Cadwalader once again finds itself in a familiar position: at the top of Creditflux’s CLO Arranger Counsel tables in the U.S., Europe and globally for Q1 2021. The firm once again led by aggregate deal volume as arranger counsel in the U.S. and Europe in Q1 2021.

The firm is also ranked among the leading Manager Counsel in all three geographic categories, reflecting its market-leading transatlantic position.

"As the Q1 data shows, the industry has really bounced back following the unprecedented challenges created by the pandemic,” said Gregg Jubin, a Cadwalader partner who specializes in CLO transactions. “Our team has produced outstanding work in close partnership with our clients, and these relationships are very important to us. With deal activity back on a steady pace, we fully expect to continue to be front and center in leading as arranger counsel on a high volume of transactions.”

Cadwalader’s Capital Markets CLO Group includes attorneys in New York, Charlotte, Washington, D.C., and London. The team advises clients on a broad range of transactions, including middle market and broadly syndicated leveraged loan CLOs, loan warehouse lines and creating other related structured debt solutions and products, as well as commercial real estate CLOs.

“We are very bullish on 2021 and anticipate continued high levels of activity in the U.S. and Europe,” said Capital Markets Practice co-chair Michael Gambro. “Banks continue to hire us for our outstanding technical capabilities and our deep understanding of the market drivers.”
