Cleary Gottlieb has been named ”Global Capital Markets Law Firm of the Year” by Chambers Global. The award was presented at a dinner in London on November 8th.

In the Chambers Global 2007 Guide to the World’s Leading Lawyers, Cleary Gottlieb is described as “among the first law firms to foresee the globalization of capital markets,” with further mention that “history shows that this strategy has paid off, as the firm is today crowned ‘the global capital markets practice par excellence’ and ‘a model of integration.
