Prompt, professional and very knowledgeable’, Sidley Austin LLP is favored for its ‘strong technical knowledge and commitment to exemplary service’. The capital markets team is well known for its advice to banks, but its dedication to building up its issuer practice continues to translate into a steady stream of company-side mandates. Most notably, the ‘excellentJames O’Connor acted with Jason Friedhoff to advise Caterpillar Financial Services on a private debt exchange offer and ten debt offerings of MTN, worth a combined $3.5bn. In addition, Robert Ryan assisted Synchrony Financial with three offerings of senior notes totaling $1.2bn. The firm also remains a pre-eminent choice for underwriters’ counsel and San Francisco-based Eric Haueter advised various underwriters on three significant transactions for Disney including a new $8bn MTN program. Elsewhere, Edward Petrosky paired up with O’Connor to assist the underwriters with four MTN offerings by American Honda Finance.
