January 24, 2022

Cadwalader’s Samantha Hutchinson, a partner and Head of Fund Finance, UK, has been shortlisted as part of the International and Legal Week’s 2022 Women, Influence & Power in Law (WIPL) UK Awards.

The awards honor top women lawyers, both in law firms and in-house legal departments, for their contributions to the legal profession over the past year. WIPL honorees will be recognized during an awards ceremony on May 18, as part of the larger WIPL UK event in London.

Hutchinson’s shortlisted category, “Innovative Leaders,” is an award “to recognize women who are the thinkers, the ‘idea’ women.”

In 2021, Hutchinson was the recipient of the WIPL UK “Thought Leadership - Private Practice” award.

Hutchinson’s practice focuses on advising both financial institutions and private markets managers on the full range of fund finance products across all asset classes, including subscription lines, primary and secondary leverage and liquidity lines, GP and executive financings and co-invest facilities delivered via a number of different structures including framework and umbrella facilities.

She was recognized in the Financial Times Europe Innovative Lawyers 2021 Report in a spotlight on “forward-looking legal practitioners,” as one of just 10 attorneys profiled who are “recognized for having helped clients by thinking about the future as well as the challenges of the present.”
