Capital markets: debt offerings

Within: Capital markets: debt offerings

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP’s broad debt capability is particularly strong on the issuer side but the group also enjoys good links with underwriters. The telecoms, technology and energy sectors are all strong sources of work and it also regularly represents private equity funds and their portfolio companies. New York’s John Kennedy co-heads the North American capital markets and securities practice and recently advised Michael Kors on its $450m offering of senior notes. Andrew Foley, who splits his time between Toronto and New York, advised Canadian Natural Resources on three notes offerings totaling around $3bn. Department co-chair Gregory Ezring and corporate deputy chair Monica Thurmond are also recommended - both are based in New York.
