Established in 1972, Sullivan & Cromwell’s London office is the Firm’s second-largest office after New York. There are 66 English, U.S. and dual-qualified lawyers working in the office across a number of practice groups, including Equity and Debt Capital Markets, Mergers and Acquisitions, Private Equity, Leveraged and Acquisition Finance, Restructuring, Project Development and Finance, Competition and Tax.
The London office focuses in particular on cross-border and multijurisdictional assignments that capitalize on the U.S., English and EU legal expertise and extensive market knowledge of the lawyers in the London office. In addition, reflecting the global nature and highly integrated team approach of S&C’s practice, London-based lawyers frequently draw on, and are a resource for, the Firm’s other offices.
Over the past 15 years, in addition to partners and associates advising on U.S. law, S&C’s London office has included partners and associates advising on English and EU law. During that period, we have strengthened and developed all areas of our practice, while in particular making significant strides in the organic growth of our English and EU law practices. We expect all areas of our practice to develop further during the coming years in response to the needs of our clients.
