Sunil Savkar - Ropes & Gray LLP

Within: Commercial lending

Ropes & Gray LLP has ‘a world-class’ banking practice that is particularly well known for its sponsor-led advice where it acts on a broad range of mid and large cap transactions. The ‘outstanding’ team is ‘easy to work with and ensures, in each engagement, to focus on the client needs’. Recently the firm advised the Blackstone Group and Change Healthcare Holdings on the $6.6bn financing required to help facilitate its joint venture with McKesson Technology Solutions into a leading global health care services and IT company. The firm also represented Surgery Partners and its majority shareholder, Bain Capital, on the $1.3bn financing for its acquisition of National Surgical healthcare. Beyond the private equity sphere, the firm represented corporate client IQVIA on a $1.5bn bond issue used in connection with its three-way merger with Quintiles Transnational Holdings and IMS Health Holdings. Highly regarded global co-head Byung Choi leads the team out of Boston, ably supported by Stefanie Birkmann, Jay Kim, Sunil Savkar, and Alexander Zeltser (‘outstanding and brings a balanced aggressive approach to agreement development and administration’) in New York. The firm also has an increasingly active direct lending practice jointly led by Alyson Gal in Boston and Joanne De Silva in New York. Clients on this side include KKR Credit Advisors, Hancock Capital Management, and Benefit Street Partners.
