India Business Law Journal (IBLJ) has once again named Shearman & Sterling as a Top 10 foreign law firm for its India-related work in its June issue. This is the seventh consecutive year that IBLJ has included Shearman & Sterling in its Top 10 list.
IBLJ acknowledged the firm’s strong performance on India-related deals over the past 12 months. Further highlighting Shearman & Sterling’s accomplishments as an international legal adviser, India Business Law Journal’s Deals of the Year featured three transactions among the firm’s achievements in 2014, including representing Jaguar Land Rover Automotive on its US$1.11 billion high-yield bond offering; advising Greenko Group on its US$550 million senior notes and bonds financing; and representing Sun Pharmaceuticals on its US$3.2 billion acquisition of Ranbaxy.
The report draws on an analysis of over 600 law firms from every continent that have documented deals and matters with an Indian connection over the past 12 months. Results are based on rigorous research, extensive editorial experience, correspondence with corporate counsel and Indian law firms, as well as a wide network of contacts.
