Cadwalader is ranked at the top of all three – Global, US and European – Creditflux CLO Arranger Counsel tables for 2016. The firm is also ranked among the leading Manager Counsel in all three geographic categories, reflecting its market-leading transatlantic position.

"We’re fortunate to work with outstanding clients who are leaders in the industry,” said Stuart Goldstein, co-chair of Cadwalader's Capital Markets Practice. “It is gratifying to know that they have confidence in our capabilities. Our global team works closely with regulators, industry associations and our arranger and fund manager clients to develop new and innovative CLO structures under the new risk retention rules.”

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.

In November 2016, Cadwalader was named “Top Arranger Counsel” in the Creditflux 2016 Scrolls of Excellence, an annual global survey of the CLO market. Earlier this year, Cadwalader also was named 2016’s “Top Underwriter Counsel for U.S. CLOs” by Asset-Backed Alert, and was “highly commended” by the Financial Times for its role in the first CLO structures to facilitate financings by asset managers under both European and U.S. risk retention rules.

“This leadership position is an acknowledgment of the depth and experience of our team,” said Capital Markets Practice co-chair Michael Gambro. “Our team provides unparalleled market insight, technical knowledge and innovative solutions to regulatory challenges for our clients.”
