George Zobitz - Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP

Within: Commercial lending

As one of the premier firms for lender-side work, Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP has ironclad relationships with some of the country's largest financial institutions, which it regularly advises on investment-grade loans and complex financings and refinancings. The six-partner team also regularly sits on the borrower side of the table for its corporate clients, such as Qualcomm, which it advised on $6bn in facilities to finance its ultimately abandoned acquisition of NXP Semiconductors. The firm also acted on significant deals for Northrop Grumman and Time Warner. On the lender side it acted for JP Morgan in relation to $12bn of credit facilities provided to Dow DuPont linked to its separation into three companies and the spin-off of Corteva. Michael Goldman leads the team, which also includes corporate managing partner George Zobitz, Tatiana Lapushchik, Joseph Zavaglia, and Stephen Kessing.
