Debevoise & Plimpton’s Capital Markets and Private Equity Groups have been recognized as 2018 “Practice Groups of the Year” by Law360.

Law360’s annual practice group awards highlight the law firms that “notched the biggest litigation victories or deals of the year.” Winners are selected “for the size, complexity and significance of the deals or litigation they worked on.” The awards recognize work done by transactional, litigation and regulatory lawyers across each of the groups.

Regularly involved in many complex, market-shaping deals, Debevoise’s Capital Markets practice covers a broad range of transactional and advisory matters. The Group is global in scope, including over 70 lawyers from eight offices in key financial centers. Utilizing an interdisciplinary approach, the team regularly draws upon specialists from other areas of the firm, including those in banking, bankruptcy and reorganization, communications, derivatives, employee benefits and executive compensation, finance, insurance, intellectual property, mergers and acquisitions, and tax. With a high level of partner involvement in each matter, the capital markets team as a whole is praised by Legal 500 for its “excellent overall level of service” and its ability to “respond to clients quickly and efficiently.”
