The ‘experienced and practical’ group at DLA Piper LLP (US) impresses with its ‘efficient execution on complex transactions’. The firm’s expansive domestic and international network is also a recurring theme and one source comments, ‘as one of the largest firms, it can use its scale to ramp up quickly on sophisticated matters’. Global corporate co-chair John Gilluly, who splits his time between Austin, Dallas and Houston, is ‘incredibly knowledgeable, available and committed’ and advised SolarWinds on its IPO. In another issuer-side headline, Phoenix-based Gregory Hall assisted Mesa Air Group with its $115.6m IPO. The group also benefits from the senior experience of finance chair Jamie Knox, who is ‘experienced, smart and always available’, and US capital markets head Christopher Paci, both of whom are based in New York.

  • Sentencing guidelines for corporate manslaughter

    In February 2010 the Sentencing Guidelines Council (the SGC) issued definitive guidelines to courts on imposing appropriate sentences for corporate manslaughter and health and safety offences causing death. The SGC states that fines imposed on companies found guilty of corporate manslaughter should not fall below £500,000, while fines in respect of health and safety offences that are a significant cause of death should be at least £100,000. Crucially, the SGC declined to provide for a fixed link between the imposed fine and the turnover or profitability of the offending company.
