Orrick Maintains Ranking as Top Bond Counsel for First Half of 2015

The Bond Buyer | July.15.2015

Orrick was once again recognized as the top bond counsel firm in the United States in a recent article published in The Bond Buyer. According to data collected by Thomson Reuters, Orrick worked on 205 deals totaling $20.699 billion par value, or 9.7% of the market, during the first half of 2015. This is an increase from $11.497 billion in 137 deals, or 8% of the market, in the first half of 2014.

"It was a terrific first half in public finance in general, as the market is up almost 50% in dollar volume and 30% in number of issues. That is good news for everyone, including us," said Roger Davis, head of Orrick’s Public Finance Practice, which has been ranked the number one municipal bond counsel in the nation since 2001. He continued, "Our numbers are up more than the market in general, and that's attributed to a great team of bond and tax lawyers and great clients. We don't take our ranking for granted and the credit belongs to the whole team."
