Shearman & Sterling LLP has been a major player in the commercial lending scene for many years and clients report 'great experiences' with the group's lawyers. The firm has developed strong relationships with major financial institutions and direct lenders, and also has links with borrowers in the corporate and private equity spheres. On the lender side, the team advised Bank of America as administrative agent on the cross-border financing to support Comcast Corporation's £22bn offer for Sky. On the borrower front, the firm advised Vector Capital and its portfolio company, Saba Software, on a $497m financing, part of which went towards the acquisition of a European software company. Maura O’Sullivan and Ronan Wicks jointly lead the seven partner team, which includes the firm's highly experienced head of global leveraged finance Joshua Thompson, and Gus Atiyah, who is noted for his borrower-side expertise.
