Latham & Watkins LLP reinforced its capital markets team in 2016 with the hires of Washington DC-based counsel Paul Dudek, who was formerly chief of the SEC’s office of international corporate finance, and Michael Benjamin, who joins the New York office from Shearman & Sterling LLP. Regularly acting for both issuers and underwriters in a mix of investment grade and high-yield offerings, the group also draws on the firm’s global footprint to excel in cross-border matters. In a recent example, New York-based Gregory Rodgers and Orange County-based Charles Ruck led a US team that worked alongside the firm’s London office to advise Amgen on its CHF700m offering of bonds listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange - the firm also acted for Amgen during its $4.9bn debt exchange offer. In an underwriter-side highlight, Washington DC-based Rachel Sheridan and counsel Brandon Bortner assisted JP Morgan with Exxon Mobil’s issuance of six tranches of fixed rate notes and two tranches of floating rate notes totaling $12bn. In New York, Marc Jaffe and Ian Schuman are also recommended, while Patrick Shannon is a key name in Washington DC. Kirk Davenport retired in 2016.
