Daniel Seale - Latham & Watkins LLP

Within: Commercial lending

Latham & Watkins LLP is one of the premier choices for borrower and lender work, with top-notch teams of lawyers spread throughout its US network of offices. The borrower side of the practice, which is particularly active in Washington DC thanks to its relationship with Carlyle Group, acts for a broad mix of private equity houses and corporates. Recently, the team advised CommScope, a US communications cable maker backed by Carlyle, on the financing of its $7.4bn takeover of Arris, the UK-based entertainment and networking equipment maker. Other key clients include Caesars Resort Collection, which it advised on a $1.7bn bond offering to finance existing debt. The firm's cross-border capabilities and strong banking relationships were demonstrated by its advice to JPMorgan Chase, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation and MUFG Bank as lead arrangers on the $30.9bn bridge credit facilities to Takeda Pharmaceutical Company to partly fund its acquisition of Shire. Other banking clients include Credit Suisse, Citibank, and Antares Capital. New York-based banking practice chair Daniel Seale jointly leads the top-tier team alongside vice chairs Greg Robins in Los Angeles and Stephen Kensell in London. Other key figures include New York managing partner MichÚle Penzer, Christopher Plaut, Melissa Alwang, and Scott Gottdiener on the lender side. Jeffrey R. Chenard and Joshua Tinkelman are also recommended for their borrower side advice.
