A popular choice for private equity issuers, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP fields ‘a proactive and client-oriented’ New York-based team, which ‘intuitively understands how to maneuver deals through tricky tight spots’. Gregory Ezring is ‘an effective adviser’ and with Brian Janson and Tracey Zaccone advised Rackspace Hosting on its $1.2bn offering of senior notes to help finance the $4.4bn leveraged buyout of the company by Apollo Global Management. John Kennedy co-heads the practice alongside Ezring and assisted Virtu Financial with an offering by its subsidiaries of $500m of senior notes. The energy and natural resources industry is also a significant source of work, with the group recently advising on high-yield debt offerings by EP Energy, Foresight Energy and Iamgold. Monica Thurmond, who is deputy chair of the corporate department, and Catherine Goodall are also recommended.
