London > Finance > High yield

Alston & Bird LLP has a young high yield practice in London, though its team has more than 30 years of combined experience in high yield debt and leveraged finance. In 2021, the practice closed transactions with a combined volume of approximately $2.9bn, having advised multiple debut issuers in over $1.5bn in high yield bond offerings, and corporates and sponsors in over $1.3bn in acquisition financings. Practice head Tamer Bahgat is ‘a solid high yield partner‘; he worked with a team in Washington DC to assist World Acceptance Corporation on its debut high yield bond offering of $300m in senior notes. Counsel Michael Lee also played a key role in both transactions.
