Kaye Scholer LLP's Investment Funds Practice was listed as among the best in the United Kingdom in the 2007 edition of the UK Legal 500. This is the first year the firm has been ranked in the UK Legal 500, which reported that the "impressive hire of Timothy Spangler and Simon Firth" has "helped cement the firm's reputation as a serious player in the market. The group provides an impressive service to private equity and hedge funds clients, and benefits from the firm's transatlantic reach."

The Legal 500 provides commentaries on law firms in over 90 countries worldwide. Their team of researchers speaks to thousands of law firm commercial clients every year, and their law firm recommendations are based on what those clients tell them. In addition, they acquire as much information as possible about the client lists of major firms and the matters/deals they have been involved in to report on each firm.

Kaye Scholer is representing Biotest AG in its proposed acquisition of Nabi Biopharmaceuticals' Nabi Biologics strategic business unit for $185 million.
