We represent leading companies in their initial issuances and refinancings of debt securities and offer financial institutions dynamic solutions for transactions that involve both bank and bond financings.

Our team has significant experience with high yield, investment grade and convertible notes offerings, including financing for leveraged acquisitions, as well as liability management transactions such as exchange offers, tender offers and consent solicitations. We continue to broaden our strong platform assisting corporate issuers of debt securities, many of whom are longstanding clients. Our ongoing work with leading global companies across a wide range of industries highlights the strength of our relationships with our clients and their trust in our counsel. Levi Strauss, Millicom International Cellular, NOVA Chemicals Corporation, Pacific Gas and Electric Company and 361 Degrees International are among the companies that look to us as their primary issuer’s counsel in connection with debt offerings, collectively raising billions of dollars.  We also handle ongoing compliance management for our clients.

A key feature of our practice is our ability to advise on evolving transactions that require flexibility in selecting the best financing solution ultimately implemented.  Our team coordinates seamlessly on structuring and negotiating transactions with both bank and bond financing components and can also change gears smoothly from one financing structure to another to accommodate fluctuating market conditions and pricing considerations for each individual deal. We have extensive experience in managing collateral and cross-border concerns and negotiating intercreditor issues between different classes of debt.

With a global network of offices and experience in several crucial areas of fundraising, our debt capital markets capabilities build upon the expertise of our highly rated Capital Markets, Banking & Finance, Energy, Infrastructure and M&A and Private Equity practice groups, providing counsel on the debt capital markets components of leveraged acquisitions, debt offerings, financing high impact energy and infrastructure projects and acquisitions in the technology sector and numerous other industries.
