Position

Stuart K. Fleischmann is a senior partner in the firm’s Capital Markets group and spends time in both the New York and Sao Paulo offices focusing principally on debt and equity offerings by Latin American companies, sovereign nations and quasi-governmental entities.
He regularly represents underwriters and issuers, primarily in the oil and gas, steel, telephone, electricity and financial institution industries, on a wide range of SEC registered, 144A/Regulation S and private placements of debt and equity securities. Mr. Fleischmann is also regularly involved in such novel transactions as toll road financings and securitizations involving credit cards, residential mortgages, international oil payments, money transfers and electronic remittances, loan pools, auto and farm equipment loans and leases and franchise revenues.
According to Chambers Latin America wide 2017 Edition – clients describe Mr. Fleischmann as "highly committed, and willing to resolve any problem in the shortest time possible” and “an excellent lawyer, very good and client-oriented".

Within: Capital markets: global offerings

Shearman & Sterling LLP has a well-integrated network of international offices providing advice to clients on their global debt and equity offerings. Teams in New York, San Francisco, Washington DC and Palo Alto work closely with partners in London, Hong Kong, Singapore, Toronto and São Paulo. The Latin American practice has been particularly busy thanks to low interest rates that have brought several sovereign issuers back to the market. This was demonstrated through the firm’s advice to the global coordinators and joint bookrunners during Argentina’s $16.5bn bond offering, which was the largest offering by an emerging market, and marked Argentina’s return to the capital markets following its sovereign default in 2002. On the issuer side, the firm acted for Panama’s Aeropuerto Internacional de Tocumen in its $575m offering. Key partners include practice group leader David Beveridge, Antonia Stolper, and Stuart Fleischmann and Jason Lehner, who are respectively known for their Mexico and Canada work.
