Capital markets: high-yield debt offerings

Within: Capital markets: high-yield debt offerings

Shearman & Sterling LLP houses a broad capital markets practice, which draws particular praise for its ‘great relationships with underwriters’ and ‘strong profile in Latin American deals’. The firm’s Canada expertise is also a significant pillar of the practice and Jason Lehner, who splits his time between New York and Toronto, handled several high-yield debt offerings involving Canadian companies over the past year. Most notably, he advised the underwriters on Mountain Province Diamonds’ $330m private placement. On the US side, Lehner advised the joint bookrunners on notes offerings worth $1.7bn by Wand Merger Corporation. The firm also acts for issuers, which included Lisa Jacobs (‘incredibly hard working with excellent judgment’) advising to American Axle Manufacturing on its $400m notes offering and concurrent debt tender offer. Also recommended are Harald Halbhuber and Ilir Mujalovic.
