Alexander Lentz - Latham & Watkins LLP

Within: Debt capital markets

Latham & Watkins LLP’s integrated capital markets and banking practice assists issuers and banks with the issuance of investment grade and high-yield bonds; the latter constitutes a particular area of strength for the practice, while it also handles bank bonds in Germany, other European countries and the US. Alexander Lentz and team head Rüdiger Malaun jointly advised Demire Deutsche Mittelstand Real Estate on the first issuance and subsequent tap offering of senior notes under New York law totalling €400m and maturing in 2022, and assisted a banking consortium led by Morgan Stanley with the issuance of two tranches of senior notes by Consolidated Energy Finance, the financial vehicle of a Swiss-based methanol and fertiliser company, amounting to $800m. Another banking consortium including Barclays, Deutsche Bank and Citigroup received assistance with a bridge-to-bond financing in connection with the public takeover of Stada by the financial investors Bain Capital and Cinven, while BayWa instructed the team to advise on the issuance of a €300m subordinated high-yield bond. Frankfurt-based Gregory Walker was appointed counsel in January 2018.
