The Americas capital markets group at White & Case LLP is led out of New York by John Donovan and it also benefits from key domestic platforms in Washington DC and Miami, as well as Latin American footholds in Mexico City and São Paulo. The energy sector remains a primary source of deals and the firm also has a strong record in the life sciences and technology sectors, with a good split between issuer and underwriter-side work. Recent mandates saw David Johansen advising Hess on its $1.1bn offering of common stock and concurrent $575m offering of depositary shares. On the underwriter side, Colin Diamond assisted Goldman Sachs, Barclays Capital, Jefferies and RBC Capital Markets with Mimecast’s $77.5m IPO. All named partners are based in New York.
