Simpson Thacher’s practice is unsurpassed in scope and sophistication, yet its culture remains welcoming and collegial. The corporate department regularly tops the charts in mergers and acquisitions, capital markets, banking and private equity. Our integrated corporate teams regularly advise leading companies on a variety of complex transactions and our clients benefit from our ability to assemble strong worldwide, multidisciplinary teams to address increasingly intricate transactions.
