Brett Cassidy - Latham & Watkins

Within: High yield

Latham & Watkins¬†attracts praise for its 'depth of experience and strong ability to run complex transactions;¬†if Latham is on a deal - regardless of which side it is acting on - it will get done well'. Across its European offices, the firm handled 90 high yield deals in 2017, with a combined value of more than $70bn. Its eight-partner team is the largest in London and is involved in some of the most complex deals in the market. A good example is Wind Tre's cross-border refinancing, which included the issuance of ‚ā¨7.3bn in senior secured notes. Practice head¬†Brett Cassidy, who¬†is 'probably the most technically capable lawyer in the high yield market', acted for¬†banks including Bank of America Merrill Lynch and HSBC on that deal.¬†Jennifer Engelhardt¬†is 'one of the most well-respected lawyers in high yield - she has encyclopaedic market knowledge, coupled with a collaborative approach that makes you want her on your side'. She acted for Aker BP in a $400m notes offering. The firm's deep bench of talent includes managing partner¬†Richard Trobman;¬†¬†Jocelyn Seitzman, who handled an ¬£855m deal for¬†Madison Dearborn Partners;¬†Francesco Lione, whose clients include Goldman Sachs;¬†Tracy Edmonson, who handled a deal for Wagamama Finance; and¬†Scott Colwell, who represented lead managers in a ‚ā¨5.3bn financing for Bain Capital and Cinven.¬†Jeffrey Lawlis,¬†who works in London and Milan, 'sees some of the most complicated deals in the market and is always able to find a solution'.
