Finalists: Akin Gump; Allen & Overy (highly commended); Bracewell; Eversheds Sutherland; Morgan, Lewis & Bockius; Paul Hastings.
Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy secured the finance team of the year award for its various roles in buyout firm Baring Private Equity Asia’s $4.3bn acquisition of Hong Kong-based international school operator Nord Anglia Education.
Milbank represented HSBC as administrative and collateral agent, and Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse and Macquarie as lead banks on the deal’s financing arrangements (which involved a series of multi-currency loans and revolving credit facilities backed by a collateral package spanning 19 jurisdictions across the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East).
