Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, a leading advisor to corporations and financial institutions, has been selected as the 2013 Derivatives Week/Derivatives Intelligence Law Firm of the Year. The award was presented at last night’s Derivatives Week/Derivatives Intelligence’s annual Gala Reception and Dinner, held at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in London. It is Cadwalader’s second consecutive Law Firm of the Year win.
The winners were selected based on a comprehensive, qualitative survey of financial services providers spanning multiple asset classes, regulation, tax and other areas. Participants from both the buyside and the sellside provided full, in-depth rankings, benchmarking law firms across asset classes, product types, regulation, clearing and related criteria.
“Our Financial Services team continues to garner the respect of peers and clients,” said W. Christopher White, Cadwalader’s Chairman. “We are extremely proud to once again be recognized as Law Firm of the Year.”
The honor comes on the heels of Cadwalader’s recent success at the IFLR Americas 2013 Awards, where the firm won the Structured Finance and Securitization Team of the Year award. It is the second year in a row that the firm has been recognized by IFLR for its groundbreaking work.
Cadwalader’s derivatives and structured products practices combine market-leading regulatory expertise and transactional experience with fully-integrated, top-tier securities, tax, ERISA, structured transactions, energy and commodities, banking and financial restructuring practices to provide clients with prompt, practical and comprehensive advice on the most complex derivatives issues and transactions.
