Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP’s practice, which is equally adept at advising issuers and underwriters, stands out in complex deals, and has a strong track record in acquisition and spin-off transactions. The firm’s expertise on the debt side is illustrated by its enviable deal volume over the past twelve months: from November 2017 until November 2018, the group handled investment grade deals worth over $117bn. Finance co-lead Craig Arcella enjoys a premier reputation for his financial institution relationships and recently advised a group of underwriters, led by Barclays, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley, on Union Pacific’s $6bn notes offering. Also on the underwriter side, William Fogg, who co-heads the finance practice, and newly promoted partner Michael Mariani advised the underwriters, led by JP Morgan, on a $6bn notes offering by JPMorgan Chase. Additionally, Johnny Skumpija acted on several issuer-side highlights, including advising NestlĂ© Holdings on its $8bn notes offering. In another marquee company-side transaction, Nicholas Dorsey, who also recently made partner, acted for The Walt Disney Company on offers by its wholly-owned subsidiary TWDC Holdco 613 Corporation to exchange notes issued by 21st Century Fox for up to $18.1bn. Andrew Pitts, who heads the capital markets department, and William Whelan are also prominent names in the New York-based group.
