Capital markets: equity offerings

Within: Capital markets: equity offerings

The ‘top-flight group’ at Proskauer Rose LLP distinguishes itself through its ‘comprehensive expertise’, ‘immediate response times’ and ‘very practical advice’. The practice, which has traditionally been dominated by issuer-side mandates, continues to see an uptick in manager-side work, such as Los Angeles-based group co-chair Philippa Bond’s advice to the underwriters on Five Point Holdings’ $399m IPO. Among its highlights for its core issuer client base, Los Angeles-based private equity co-head Monica Shilling assisted Carlyle’s business development company, TCG BDC, with its $166m IPO, and she also acted for Floor & Décor on its $192m IPO and $428m secondary offering. In New York, group co-chair Frank Lopez, together with senior counsel Daniel Forman, assisted Leisure Acquisition with its proposed $250m IPO. Other key contacts in New York are Julie Allen, who is ‘always calm, cool and collected’, and Stuart Bressman.

Capital markets: high-yield debt offerings

Within: Capital markets: high-yield debt offerings

Proskauer Rose LLP continues to make inroads into the high-yield debt market, particularly on the underwriter side, where it has significantly increased its profile among the major bulge-bracket banks over recent years. Among its headline manager-side mandates, global capital markets co-head Frank Lopez and Stephen Gruberg advised the underwriters (including JP Morgan, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) on PulteGroup’s $1bn offering of senior notes. Lopez and leveraged finance lead Justin Breen assisted Jefferies and Deutsche Bank with Airxcel’s $310m offering of senior secured notes. Recent issuer highlights include Lopez and Maximilian Kirchner, who splits his time between New York and London, advising Grifols on its €1bn senior notes offering and Julie Allen assisting Icahn Enterprises with its $1.1bn bond offering. Los Angeles-based global capital markets co-head Philippa Bond is also a key contact. Named lawyers are based in New York, unless otherwise stated.
