Financial News Recognizes London Office as “Debt-Credit Team of the Year” Finalist
On Feb. 17, Financial News announced the shortlist for its second annual Awards for Excellence in Legal Services, Europe. These awards honor the annual accomplishments of law firms, in-house teams and individual attorneys.
FN recognized Ropes & Gray as a “Debt-Credit Team of the Year” finalist noting, “Last year’s highlight was undoubtedly the firm’s highly praised work for Liberty Global in the financing for its $25 billion acquisition of Virgin Media.”
This transaction and Ropes & Gray client Liberty Global’s in-house team were also recognized as finalists for the “Deal of the Year” category. FN mentions that Liberty sought “external legal advice from a team in the London office of Ropes & Gray, led by partner Jane Rogers alongside fellow partner Mike Goetz.”
In addition to this most recent recognition, the firm’s work for Liberty in connection with this transaction has garnered attention from other leading publications such as The New York Times, Bloomberg Legal Week, International Financial Law Review, The Lawyer, Chambers and Legal 500, among others.
The winners will be announced on April 23 at an awards ceremony in London.
