Carson Welsh - Linklaters LLP

Within: Debt capital markets

Linklaters LLP is 'a go-to firm for any investment grade debt and it has the ability to handle both plain vanilla and esoteric products'. Liability management and retail bonds specialist Elaine Keats, who acted for British American Tobacco Group on the issuance of $17.5bn in notes, leads the practice, which has a deep bench of talent across all aspects of DCM. For some, Richard Levy is 'the best counsel in London, especially for complex products; he is super-technical and commercial'. Keith Thomson handles debt and equity-linked transactions in the Euro markets and is a specialist in convertible and exchangeable bonds. Thomson and Ben Dulieu are 'the two lawyers everyone in equity-linked seeks out for transactions'. Carson Welsh focuses on regulatory capital transactions, which last year included advising Banco Santander on $250m in second ranking senior notes, which are new types of security in the Spanish market. US-qualified Cecil Quillen is also recommended for regulatory capital deals. Richard O’Callaghan has significant MENA and emerging markets expertise, and clients note that he is ' highly skilled and responsive, with a particular expertise in more complex issues'. Neil Dixon is 'outstanding - he has the complete confidence of clients and is always up-to-date with market developments in the incredibly technical world of financial services regulatory capital'. Managing associate Manoj Tulsiani is 'very technical and commercial and doesn't waste any time'.
