'The market-leading borrower side practice',¬†Slaughter and May¬†provides an 'exceptionally high-quality service' to a stellar roster of blue-chip corporates including Costain Group plc, First Group, Ocado Group and Tata Steel, across the gamut of financing work including for acquisition finance, as well as general corporate and working capital purposes. The team's pre-eminent borrower side reputation is further underscored by the firm's role for the Association of Corporate Treasurers in relation to LMA documentation; notably the firm recently updated the Borrower's Guide to¬†LMA Loan Documentation for Investment Grade Borrowers‚Äô to reflect the¬†ongoing reforms to LIBOR, Euribor and other benchmarks.¬†Matthew Tobin¬†recently advised Dufry on its¬†‚ā¨2.4bn new facilities¬†(for refinancing and general corporate purposes)¬†which included Euro and US dollar term loan facilities and a multi-currency revolving facility. As well as new money financings, the team has also handled numerous refinancing mandates for corporate clients including¬†Robert Byk¬†'s representation of ISS on the refinancing of its existing credit facility with a new ‚ā¨1bn revolving credit facility. Other recommended partners include¬†Ed Fife,¬†Philip Snell¬†and¬†Andrew McClean.
