Lawyer Rankings

United States > Finance > Capital markets: debt offerings

Vinson & Elkins LLP has a rounded practice, principally in the high-yield debt field, but with further credibility in investment grade and convertibles. The firm is building its presence in ESG and sustainable finance; it advised Goldman Sachs on Sunnova Energy International’s $400m green bond offering in 2021. While best known for its work in the energy and infrastructure sectors, it has gained further traction in REITs and lands further engagements through its expanding private equity client base. It is slightly more active on the issuer-side, but also frequently advises underwriters. Houston’s Mark Kelly, Gillian Hobson, Alan Beck, David Oelman, Ramey Layne and David Stone are amongst its key partners in the capital markets sphere, along with Washington DC partner Christopher Green.
