Lawyer Rankings

United States > Finance > Capital markets: global offerings

Hogan Lovells US LLP‘s US-based global offerings practice is largely driven by Latin America transactions. This includes sovereign offerings and structured finance-related transactions; diversified payment rights deals are a particular forte thanks to the expertise of senior figure Emil Arca. While much of the practice centers on debt transactions in emerging markets throughout Latin America, the firm has landed a growing market share of equity offerings from Brazil. Evan Koster is noted for sovereign offerings and Sina Hekmat is experienced in representing German issuers in global offerings.
