Practice Overview

Banking and Credit

Cravath’s banking and credit lawyers are among the most prominent and accomplished in the United States, and the practice is ranked in the highest tier by both Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business and The Legal 500 United States. The 2019 edition of Chambers USA quotes a client praising the Firm’s “knowledge of current market terms and precedents, relentless attention to detail and work ethic” and a source identifying Cravath as “the best law firm on Wall Street.” The Firm is a five‑time winner of the Chambers USA Award for Excellence in Finance.

Our lawyers regularly represent market‑leading financial institutions, including Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan, advising them in lending transactions of every type, including leveraged and investment grade acquisition financings, asset‑based financings, leveraged spin‑offs, recapitalizations, liability management, and workout and restructuring facilities, including Debtor‑in‑Possession facilities, exit financings and financings for 363 bankruptcy sales. We have also represented other major money center banks, the lending affiliates of investment banks, foreign banks and borrowers in every industry in transactions ranging from simple credit agreements to complex international multi‑currency, multi‑jurisdictional financings. Our banking partners draw upon our depth of financing expertise and extensive knowledge across our entire corporate practice to devise the most efficient and business‑oriented financing structures for our clients.
