Cadwalader was recognized in the 2018 Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Report Europe for the firm’s work in a pair of notable transactions:

  • Innovation in Managing Complexity and Scale: ‘Highly Commended’ for Cadwalader’s representation of the senior noteholders in the complex, cross-border bankruptcy of global spirits producer and distributor Roust Corporation.
  • Innovation in Accessing New Markets and Capital: ‘Commended’ for the firm’s collaboration with NatWest Markets and Be-Spoke Loan Funding DAC that brought collateralized loan obligations back to the European market for the first time since the financial crisis a decade ago.

The Financial Times received over 300 business of law submissions this year from 500 unique law firms and legal businesses in over 50 different countries. The FT and its research partner RSG Consulting then ranked these submissions on innovation and for delivering exceptional value to business based on the submissions, follow-up telephone interviews and expert references. Top submissions are then benchmarked against each other to arrive at the final rankings and shortlists.
