Sidley Austin LLP’s reputation for ‘getting great deals on the lender’s side’ was again manifest, with Chicago co-chair Charles Schrank and Los Angeles-based Brian Flavell acting for Deutsche Bank in a number of significant financings, including the $1.2bn mortgage loan for an office property located at 10 Hudson Yards, New York. In the practice’s ‘terrific’ New York office, co-chair Alan Weil was busy on behalf of clients such as Starwood Property Trust and Wells Fargo, while the ‘very knowledgeableRichard Fries assisted M&T Bank with in excess of $2bn in loan originations. On the investment side, Los Angeles-based Joel Rothstein handled a number of significant deals for Chinese investors, including advising China Orient Asset Management Company on the $712m joint venture acquisition of the Aon Center in Chicago, and representing a consortium of Chinese institutional investors in the $572m acquisition of a portfolio of seven hotel properties located in New York. The practice developed its offering in areas such as hospitality, private equity and affordable housing through a number of hires, including Los Angeles co-chair Peter Benudiz, who joined from Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP, as well as Steven Koppel, Adam Verstandig and Aviva Yakren, who all joined the New York office from Jones Day.
