Barry O’SheaClifford Chance LLP

Clifford Chance LLP is ‘best in class for complex and cross-border deals’, where ‘the team’s intellectual horsepower and weight of bodies ensure deals get over the line in the most practical way’. Practice head Andrew Carnegie is ‘the standout heavyweight in this sector’, advising leading banks on senior and mezzanine loan financings. Jane Cheong Tung Sing has a similar focus on senior and mezzanine financings, often within a pan-European framework. European work is also a core strength of Barry O’Shea, who advises traditional lenders as well as specialists in pan-European real estate investment. Emma Matebalavu is also an expert in senior and mezzanine financings, with an additional focus on the CMBS and RMBS markets. Acquisition finance specialist Alistair McGillivray is also recommended. Director Claire Fawcett and senior associate Laura Smallcombe are two particular standouts at non-partner level.
