Latham & Watkins LLP’s ‘extremely broad sector coverage’ and ‘very deep bench’ translates into a comprehensive national debt practice, which packs a punch in both issuer and underwriter mandates. The global corporate group is chaired by Marc Jaffe, who is widely revered as ‘the go-to specialist for capital markets’. New York-based Jaffe acted alongside Erika Weinberg, also based in New York, to advise JP Morgan, as lead underwriter, on Teleflex’s $500m senior notes offering. On the issuer side, New York’s Senet Bischoff assisted Mattel with its $1bn issuance of senior notes and its subsequent $500m tack-on offering. In Washington DC, Patrick Shannon and Leakhena Mom advised Novolex, a portfolio company of the Carlyle Group, on its $500m private placement of notes to support its acquisition of Waddington Group. New York partners Michael Benjamin and Stelios Saffos, and Washington DC-based Jason Licht are also noted for debt matters. Counsel Jason Ewart joined in New York from Paul Hastings LLP.
