A respected name for global capital markets’, Shearman & Sterling LLP ‘stands shoulder to shoulder with the best in Latin America’; particularly in Brazil, where sources highlight its ‘great relationships with underwriters’. In a recent example of its regional strength, the firm advised Brazil’s PagSeguro Digital on its IPO and secondary offering on the NYSE, which raised around $2.6bn — New York-based Harald Halbhuber led that deal with support from the Sao Paulo office. The firm also sets itself apart through its Canada expertise. Recent work in that area included Jason Lehner, who splits his time between Toronto and New York, advising the underwriters on Ontario Teachers’ Finance Trust’s $2bn private placement of notes listed on the Irish Stock Exchange (now trading as Euronext Dublin). Other key contacts include Antonia Stolper, who heads the Latin America affinity group from New York, and Stuart Fleischmann, who splits his time between New York and Sao Paulo.
