Within: Commercial lending

Shearman & Sterling LLP is a key player in the market with an especially strong reputation for lender work. The firm has an impressive array of institutional clients. Recently it advised Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith, Credit Suisse and Bank of America on a $6.7bn loan to McCormick to finance its acquisition of Reckitt Benckiser Group’s food division. Another highlight was representing Credit Suisse on its complex $1.3bn financing of the takeover of Lexmark International by Hyland Software, a portfolio company of Thoma Bravo. The borrower side of the practice, where partner Gus Atiyah is recommended, was also active. The firm recently advised Saba Software, a portfolio company of Vector Capital, on a $375m loan to finance its acquisition of Halogen Software. Other key borrower clients include CVS Health Corporation, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Boston Scientific Corporation. The team is jointly led by the highly rated Maura O’Sullivan and Ronan Wicks, who recently relocated to New York from the firm’s London office. Joshua Thompson and Jason White also have good reputations.
