Cadwalader was named "Law Firm of the Year" by Risk Magazine at the 2018 Risk Awards held in London last night. The Risk Awards recognize the exemplary work of firms and individuals in the derivatives markets and risk management. Cadwalader was also honored as Law Firm of the Year by Risk Magazine in 2016.
“This recognition affirms our commitment to world-class client service,” said Jeffrey Robins, co-chair of Cadwalader’s Financial Services Group. “Our team approaches each engagement with the goal of providing forward-thinking, pragmatic solutions.”
In selecting Cadwalader as Law Firm of the Year, Risk Magazine noted the firm’s innovative work in several key areas, including:
“We’re fortunate to work with so many of the world’s leading corporations and institutions,” said Financial Services co-head Richard Schetman. “Earning the trust and respect of our clients is instrumental to our success.”
Cadwalader’s Financial Services team advises a broad range of clients, including broker-dealers, swap dealers, banks, investment advisers, funds of all types, pension plans, and securities and futures markets. The group is regularly recognized for its innovative, client-focused approach to structuring and documenting ISDA master agreements, advising on the extraterritorial aspects of U.S. regulation, and counseling global banks on the Volcker Rule, the Bank Holding Company Act and Title VII compliance.
