Jocelyn Seitzman - Latham & Watkins

Within: High yield

'Consistently at the top of the market', says a client of Latham & Watkins, which has the largest group of high yield specialists of any firm in London. The firm remains a leader in the market and two promotions, Matthew Schneider  and Fritz Ernemann, bring the number of partners in Brett Cassidy's London group to nine. They handle the full range of high yield debt products in Europe, as well as calling on the firm's extensive banking, industry, regulatory and compliance practices to support investment banks, private equity sponsors and corporates. In 2018, the firm had a role in 99 high yield transactions that closed, with an aggregate deal value in excess of $105.9bn. Jocelyn Seitzman frequently handles  sponsor-side work for private equity houses; Scott Colwell and Francesco Lione act for major banks and corporates; and Jennifer Engelhardt handles deals for oil and gas industry players. Tracy Edmonson moved to the Hong Kong office with James Burnett coming the other way to join the London group.
