Ropes & Gray LLP boosted its capital markets team in 2016 through the hires of New York-based securities partner Michael Littenberg from Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP, and San Francisco-based counsel Jesse Cuevas from Shearman & Sterling LLP. The group had a strong year, acting on a string of debut and follow-on offerings and secondary offerings. In a high-profile cross-border deal, life sciences specialist Marc Rubenstein acted alongside the firm’s Hong Kong office in advising Hutchinson China MediTech on its $101m IPO. Among its work for underwriters, practice co-head Patrick O’Brien acted for the lead underwriters in two separate follow-on offerings for Sage Therapeutics totaling $325m. David Fine, Julie Jones and department co-head Paul Kinsella are also recommended. Named partners are based in Boston except where otherwise stated.
