Recognized as Private Debt Investor's European Law Firm of the Year

March 01, 2017

By Paul Hastings Professional

Paul Hastings was named Law Firm of the Year – Europe by Private Debt Investor magazine in their 2016 Annual Awards. The firm was also runner-up in The Americas.

PDI noted the firm’s central role in structuring the €270 million debt financing provided by Ares and Tikehau for private equity firm Apax’s acquisition of satellite communication company Marlink. The financing, one of the largest in the European market in 2016, spanned a number of jurisdictions.

PDI also states that Paul Hastings “focuses on both structuring individual deals and fund formation within one integrated global practice – a service that allows it to claim to be a one-stop shop for private debt funds. Last year alone, the firm structured €5 billion in fund financing facilities in France and, with offices in both Europe and the US, it is already playing a key role in the increasing traffic between the regions.”
