A&O secures pole position in 2009 projects rankings but debt shortage hits deal activity
Allen & Overy (A&O) has topped the global project finance league tables for 2009 by value and volume according to new research that shows last year's leader, Clifford Chance (CC), falling into fifth place. Infrastructure Journal's (IJ) 2009 global rankings of legal advisers on project finance transactions shows A&O advised on deals worth $23.9bn (£14.8bn). That tally, which included a role advising the 12 banks supporting the £1.5bn financing for Global Infrastructure Partners' successful bid for Gatwick Airport in October 2009, gave A&O a 6.2% share of a much-depleted market.
