Allen & Overy tops EMEA syndicated loans league table for the third year
For the third year running, Allen & Overy has topped the Thomson Reuters EMEA syndicated loans legal advisers league table for both borrowers and lenders, having advised each category on more deals by value and volume than any other law firm in the region.
The firm acted on borrower-side deals in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and lender-side deals in EMEA. This equates to 35 more deals for borrowers and 49 more deals for lenders in EMEA than any other firm.
Allen & Overy now accounts for 9.3 per cent of the borrower-side market by value and 17.5 per cent of the lender-side market by value. Allen & Overy also topped the 2013 Thomson Reuters APAC syndicated loans legal advisers league table for lenders.
The global banking practice has advised on several of the top 10 syndicated loans in EMEA by loan volume year to date in 2013 including NK Rosneft ($14bn) and Rio Tinto ($7.5bn).
