Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP advises banks, asset managers and other market makers on a variety of regulatory flow matters, leveraged lending and trading activity, and also acts for corporate end-users in commodity and equity-linked derivative transactions. Of particular note, the team was involved in several equity forward deals in 2018. In one such example, Thomas D’Ambrosio advised Entergy Corporation on a public, underwritten offering of 15.3m shares of common stock, which is expected to yield over $1bn upon settlement of the forward transaction. D’Ambrosio also advises several prominent asset managers on margin regulations and associated insolvency issues. Washington DC-based Daniel Kleinman has advised clients on the enforceability of certain netting rights, while Michael Philipp in the Chicago office has advised financial institutions, foreign exchanges and clearing organizations on regulatory matters concerning exchange-traded and OTC derivatives. Boston-based Edwin Smith, who has experience of structured finance and bankruptcy, is another key contact.
