Practice Overview

London Office

The London office was opened in 1973, but Cravath has been involved in European transactions for nearly a hundred years and has had a Paris or London office for most of the past century. The partners in Cravath’s London office are widely recognized for their expertise and regularly receive individual honors in that regard. For the past decade, Cravath has been ranked among the leading law firms in London by Chambers UK: A Client’s Guide to the UK Legal Profession.

Our London office handles the types of challenging and innovative transactions that are the hallmark of Cravath’s corporate practice. Lawyers in the London office represent non‑U.S. corporate clients in a variety of capital markets transactions; SEC compliance matters; mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures; restructurings; and general corporate matters. They also represent financial institutions, primarily in capital markets transactions, and financing sources, private equity sponsors and issuers in connection with bridge loans and long‑term high‑yield or other public debt, as well as IPOs.

Our London lawyers practice U.S. law exclusively and work closely with the leading law firms in other jurisdictions to address our clients’ needs. Over the past five years, we have executed on transactions involving companies and investors in over 35 countries, including Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bermuda, Brazil, the British Virgin Islands, Canada, China, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, the Marshall Islands, Mexico, Monaco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Cravath’s office in London is located in the CityPoint building at One Ropemaker Street, in the financial district (the “City”), near the Moorgate tube stop.
