Shearman & Sterling LLP’s national practice, which is spread between New York, Washington DC, Palo Alto and San Francisco, acted on an impressive stream of IPOs over the past year - for both issuers and underwriters. In a major headline on the company side, Richard Alsop assisted Altice USA with its $2.1bn IPO. Alsop also advised Ardagh Group on its $354m IPO. The group’s work for underwriters has been equally impressive, such as Ilir Mujalovic and Harald Halbhuber advising Credit Suisse as sole book-running manager on Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings’ $600m IPO. Mujalovic also acted for the underwriters on Venator Materials’ $522.1m IPO. Other key names are Jonathan DeSantis, who heads the capital markets practice for the Americas, highly regarded younger partner Merritt Johnson, global managing partner David Beveridge and new arrival Lona Nallengara, who joined from the SEC. All named partners are based in New York. Robert Evans departed in 2017 for the SEC, while Palo Alto’s Alan Seem left for Jones Day.
