Debevoise & Plimpton LLP has ‘an incredibly responsive, practical, deep and experienced’ borrower-led practice that is ‘the best in the business’. The team, which is led by ‘incredibly helpful’ finance chair David Brittenham, attracts praise for its strength-in-depth; partners such as Jeffrey Ross (‘great at knowing what terms we want’), Paul Brusiloff, and Scott Selinger (who ‘demonstrates depth beyond his age’) are commended for ‘caring deeply about the client relationship and working to ensure success’. The firm has an excellent track record advising private equity sponsors such as Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, Oaktree Capital Management, Providence Equity Partners and Stone Point Capital, and its work for corporates is also at the cutting edge. Recent corporate borrower highlights include advising Hertz Corporation on the $5.3bn financing required for the spin-off of its equipment rental business. In other significant mandates, the firm advised Envision Healthcare on the financing of its $15bn merger with Amsurg, and Activision Blizzard on the financing of its $5.9bn acquisition of King Digital.
