Capital markets: debt offerings

Within: Capital markets: debt offerings

Winston & Strawn LLP continues to invest in strengthening its capital markets team and new arrivals in 2017 include former Locke Lord LLP partners Bryan Goolsby and Kenneth Betts, who joined the firm’s new Dallas office, and a group of international capital markets partners led by Allen Miller and Talbert Navia, who joined in New York from Chadbourne & Parke. Underwriter-side mandates are the mainstay of the practice and Chicago-based key partner Cab Morris acted for the joint book-running managers on a $1bn offering of first mortgage bonds by Commonwealth Edison. An increased profile on the issuer side saw several company-side highlights, including assisting Silgan Holdings with its private offerings of senior unsecured notes totaling $986.9m. New York-based Joel Rubinstein chairs the department. Since publication, Robert Rawn has moved to Jenner & Block LLP.
