United States > Finance > Capital markets: high-yield debt offerings

Oil and gas powerhouse Vinson & Elkins LLP is praised for its ‘encyclopedic knowledge of key terms and structuring for energy issuers and underwriters’. The national group, which ‘stands at the leading edge of trends in the capital markets’, also impresses with its ‘first-hand experience of marquee transactions’ and its ‘broad relationship network’. David Stone is a key contact for high-yield debt offerings and teamed up with counsel Daniel Spelkin and of counsel Michael Harrington to advise Targa Resources Partners on its $1bn offering of senior notes. On the manager side, the same team advised Deutsche Bank as lead underwriter on Tullow Oil’s $800m offering of senior notes. The firm has also recently handled work for issuers outside the energy sector, including Belden and Enviva Partners. Named attorneys are based in Houston.
