Heinz, Dole Foods, Gates Global, Tibco Software, and Illinois Tool Works, as well as in eight of the ten largest buyouts completed to date. In a testament to Cahill’s transactional track record, the firm’s corporate finance practice has won many honors, including leading league tables annually and being ranked by Legal 500 and Chambers USA. Cahill is ranked nationally among the leading Debt & Equity practices and ranks as Chambers USA’s sole Band 1-ranked firm nationally in Capital Markets: High Yield Products for the sixth consecutive year; backed in part by client and market feedback that the practice is “a high-yield debt powerhouse” with one source describing Cahill as “the be-all and end-all of high-yield.” That’s not to say Cahill’s a one-trick pony, though.
