Working closely with its capital markets team alongside its London and US offices, Latham & Watkins LLP is adept at handling acquisition finance, LBO and corporate finance transactions, frequently combined with covenant lite structures and high-yield bonds, while also having experience in restructuring and real estate finance matters. The team acts for borrowers and lenders alike, leading to regular instructions from companies, investment banks and sponsors. Together with colleagues from the firm’s capital markets practice, Alexandra Hagelüken and counsel Sibylle Münch advised a bank consortium on matters pertaining to the financing of the high-yield bond-financed takeover, the first one of its kind on the German market, of MDAX listed group Stada by Bain Capital and Cinven, and assisted another banking syndicate consisting of Citigroup Global Markets and Royal Bank of Canada with a €2.5bn credit line for VW Credit. Together with counsel Cora Grannemann, Hagelüken also advised private equity firm BC Partners on financing the acquisition of PlusServer by way of a covenant lite transaction. In Munich, Christian Jahn and Andreas Diem, who retired in summer 2018, advised One Equity Partners on the financing of the acquisition of SGB-SMIT Group from BC Partners, consisting of a term loan B, a guarantee facility and a facility feature totalling €590m. In May 2018, the firm’s Bavarian office was augmented with the addition of Thomas Weitkamp from Clifford Chance. Daniel Ehret moved to King & Wood Mallesons in October 2017.
