Mayer Brown’s comprehensive national group regularly advises corporate issuers and most major underwriters on debt capital markets transactions. Edward Best heads the group from Chicago and acted for the underwriters on several high-profile offerings over the past year, including advising Morgan Stanley on Kellogg’s €600m notes issuance. On the issuer side, Chicago-based Michael Hermsen assisted Prologis with its £500m notes offering, while Palo Alto-based Jennifer Carlson advised Plastipak Holdings on a $500m notes offering. The group has also recently undertaken work for AGT Food and Ingredients, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Halcón Resources. Chicago-based David Schuette is also recommended. The firm hired a senior capital markets team from Morrison & Foerster LLP in 2018, which included new global practice co-head Anna Pinedo and Jerry Marlatt, as well as tax specialists Thomas Humphreys and Remmelt Reigersman - all join the New York office, except Reigersman who joins in Palo Alto.
