Hendrik Haag - Hengeler Mueller

Within: Debt capital markets

The strength of Hengeler Mueller’s ‘very good’ DCM practice lies in advising on the issuance of bonds and issuance programmes, leading to regular instructions on the issuance, restructuring and transaction of classic tier 1 and tier 2 notes and hybrid instruments. The ‘clever’ Dirk Bliesener acted as lead counsel when advising Bayerische Landesbank on the structuring and documentation of new debt products for the issuance of the Krügerrand Gold bond comprising 250,000 securities, while Johannes Tieves assisted the parent company of Brenntag Group with the issuance of a €600m bond. Also acting as lead counsel, Hendrik Haag advised a banking consortium led by Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and BNP Paribas on the issuance of eurobonds from Deutsche Telekom International Finance, the Dutch financing arm of Deutsche Telekom, in three tranches and with a total value of €3.5bn. He also advised innogy on the issuance of the first green bond totalling €850m, and assisted Schmolz + Bickenbach with the refinancing and restructuring of a €650m financing by issuing a €200m high-yield bond. In November 2018, Andreas Lischka joined White & Case LLP as local partner.
