Cartel Tier 1

White & Case LLP’s US antitrust offering forms a vital part of the firm’s global competition group, with the department being able to offer seamless cartel advice internationally. It has placed itself at the forefront of multiple cartel-related issues, on which it advises both US and non-US multinationals. Washington DC-based Mark Gidley steers the department; he has extensive experience advising companies and individuals on fundamental due process rights in the context of dawn raids, among other areas. Also based in DC, Peter Carney frequently assists clients with a variety of cartel investigations brought by antitrust enforcers; George Paul defends clients in cross-border investigations alleging market allocation, consumer protection requirements, and monopolization. Stationed in Boston, Michael Kendall stands out for his healthcare sector work, as well as for his knowledge of matters sitting at the nexus of antitrust and securities law. The practice of DC-based duo Christopher Curran and associate Adam Acosta also partially revolves around cartel enforcement.

Civil litigation/class actions: defense Tier 1

White & Case LLP is active in a range of industries, but is perhaps best known as 'a powerhouse in pharmaceutical antitrust litigation'. Here, the firm pairs ‘premier antitrust attorneys with premier patent attorneys to provide the expertise required to handle’ large cases, many of which concern biosimilars, reverse payment patent settlements and product-hopping monopolization. Mark Gidley leads the team in Washington DC, where other names to note are Christopher Curran and Peter Carney, a key name in the pharmaceutical industry for representations in complex civil antitrust litigation. Elsewhere, Jack Pace, in New York, ‘stands out from his peers for his thoroughness, responsiveness, and willingness to give practical advice that puts business concerns first’. On the opposite coast, in the Silicon Valley hub, 'very strong leader and advocate' Heather Burke frequently defends parallel class actions, opt-out and state AG lawsuits. Also of note in Washington DC, Kathryn Mims, was promoted to partner in 2020.

International arbitration Tier 1

Led out of Washington DC by global arbitration group chair Abby Cohen Smutny, White & Case LLP’s highly regarded ‘dream team’ shows a strong presence in other East Coast locations (including New York), in the West Coast, and in the South (in particular, Houston and Miami). In addition, the practice regularly collaborates with other offices abroad and is able to rely on arbitration resources in all large arbitration centers worldwide; examples of cross-continental cooperation include mandates handled alongside the firm's specialists in London, Paris, and Geneva. The team’s recent investment arbitration work stands out in the mining and metals sector, where it is representing Gabriel Resources Ltd. and its subsidiary bringing $4.4bn expropriation claims arising out of Romania’s treatment of the client’s investment in the Roșia Montană gold mining project. While the group certainly acts for numerous large companies in both commercial and investment treaty arbitration, it is equally well-versed in handling dispute resolution work for sovereign states; its notable client roster includes the Republic of Uzbekistan and the Republic of Bulgaria, as well as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to name a few. Furthermore, team members’ sector-specific expertise span energy, oil and gas, infrastructure, financial services, and pharmaceuticals. The ‘very smart and energeticCarolyn Lamm (Washington DC) leads the firm’s Americas arbitration practice; in the same office, senior partner Jonathan Hamilton is also an advisor of choice for multiple Latin American clients. Notably, the team in Houston stands out for its ability to handle matters relating to Brazil or Lusophone African jurisdictions; Jorge Mattamouros is the go-to practitioner for Portuguese-speaking clients. Having formerly served as the firm’s arbitration group leader for close two decades, Paul Friedland is among the most recognized names in New York’s arbitration arena. Clients recommend Ank Santens in New York for her ‘effective’ cross-examination techniques and trust-inspiring approach. Damien Nyer stands out for his civil and common law qualifications.

Testimonials

‘Very strong litigation capabilities, they set up the team we needed to deal with our dispute.’

‘Ank Santens has been outstanding in her support in our dispute. She mastered the details of a complex file and shared strategic insights that were key for us. She also ushered us through an international arbitration process that is not, in our case, usual practice for either in-house counsel or the investment teams. In my practice, I work with a great number of outside counsel, with firms of similar standing, but Ank is one of the few to have gained my complete trust.’

‘The quality of the work is usually higher than in other firms, because W&C has very specialized professionals, as well as a big team dedicated to the cases.’

‘The overall level of service is excellent. The team at White & Case has extensive expertise and experience in all types of arbitration proceedings before the most-renown international arbitration institutions and in ad-hoc arbitrations. The team is hardworking, efficient, well organized, and provides fast responses.’

‘I would recommend Abby Cohen Smutny. She has provided winning legal representation and advice in all cases she was instructed by us so far. She has excellent strategic thinking, and sound and reliable judgment. She impresses with her deep knowledge of public international law and international investment law, as well as with her extensive experience in international arbitration.’

‘I would recommend Ank Santens. She is an effective cross-examiner.’

‘I always point that White & Case’s arbitration team is the dream team. They are flexible, unique, smart, and creative.’

‘Carolyn Lamm is leads the team that works with us. She is one of the most amazing persons I’ve ever known. She is very smart and energetic, and she pays attention to every detail.’

International litigation Tier 1

The commercial litigation team at White & Case LLP is a top choice for sovereign states and banks in cross-border disputes. It also counts market-leading corporates among its impressive client list. Fielding a number of formidable litigators, the group also benefits from the wider firm's impressive global reach and deep sector expertise. It is increasingly developing a niche in terrorism-related litigation and, in a case led by Washington DC-based trio Christopher Curran, Nicole Erb and Claire DeLelle, successfully defended the Republic of Sudan against several allegations in US courts that the republic provided support or resources to Al-Qaeda for several terrorist attacks. The DC team also recently welcomed the arrival of Tara Lee from Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP, who is recommended for white-collar crime and investigations, and has particular expertise in sexual harassment investigations and litigation. Practice head Glenn Kurtz is a contact in the New York office, which is particularly well known for representing financial services companies, including Chinese banks. On the West Coast, the group boasts an impressive roster of technology and social media companies; Los Angeles-based Aalok Sharma and Rachel Feldman are key contacts in this space.

Restructuring (including bankruptcy): corporate Tier 1

Already firmly established across the globe as a leading creditor-side firm with excellent cross-border capabilities, White & Case LLP continues to grow its company-side practice; recent expansion was fueled by the arrival of experienced practitioners Jessica Boelter (who joins the New York office) and Bojan Guzina and Andrew O’Neill (both of whom join the team in Chicago) from Sidley Austin LLP in October 2020. The New York office also houses global practice head Thomas Lauria, renowned bankruptcy litigator Chris Shore and standout senior associate Mark Franke. John Cunningham, who splits his time between New York and Miami, is a key member of the specialized team, which is known for its expertise in big-ticket, cross-border restructurings of Latin American companies. Also of note, the firm has further solidified its reputation for creditor-side work by welcoming Keith Wofford and Stephen Moeller-Sally (both formerly of Ropes & Gray LLP) to New York in December 2020.

Testimonials

‘Incredibly reliable, knowledgeable, present and cares deeply about their clients. Also has tremendous global reach, which is more valuable than ever. As a start up Hedge Fund, White and Case has been a tremendous ally.’

‘The restructuring practice is a very knowledgeable and cohesive unit. They work well together, multitask and are able to deliver great results. They represent clients well and on numerous occasions are able to outsmart peers across the negotiating table. The restructuring team has an outstanding business sense which helps guide decisions to good results.’

‘W&C has, in my view, the best creditor bankruptcy practice in the market. Their lawyers know how to create value for junior creditors when odds are stacked against them. And with the additions from this year and some of the debtor representations that they landed, a case can be made that they are also the most creative debtor shop.’

‘A world-class restructuring group with leading capabilities in representing debtors, lenders, bondholders and others. While the team is first-rate in all areas, I consider them a real stand out for their exceptional advocates for “underdog” unsecured bondholders that may have been previously counted out. Well rounded advice that covers the all angles: substance, tactics and strategy.’

‘The team is incredibly well integrated and also has strength globally. I appreciate their high quality approach and ability to operate across jurisdictions. They are also able to work through all components of a bankruptcy, including refinancing and other exit transactions.’

‘John Cunningham provided the comfort that was needed especially during the negotiations. Most of the creditors were hedge funds with a very aggressive posture, but having had experience with some of them before, John was able to give me very relevant and valuable advice at all times. He went beyond the legal aspects of the restructuring and helped in the overall negotiation strategy. More importantly, he was always available. Mark Franke was the most important individual at W&C after the plan approval. He reviewed all documents, participated and gave advice on several occasions and was always available to discuss new strategies. Very knowledgeable and accountable. He always brought up the issues that I had to pay attention to. I never felt that I needed more senior people involved, because I knew he was also consulting with his superiors when needed, recognizing the importance of his team. The success of the restructuring was in a very large extent thanks to him. I had never seen an associate deliver so much.’

‘Mark Franke from the W&C restructuring team has stood out for me this year above others given (i) the quality of his work and legal advice and (ii) his commercial approach both on the project and in investing in the relationship. Further, when needed, he leveraged the W&C platform to bring in Senior Partners to provide me with highly valuable legal advice and industry insights on a complex project we were pursuing.’

‘Tom Lauria has proven that he is one of the most creative bankruptcy lawyers out there.’

‘Our key relationship has been with Scott Greissman. I consider him to be one of the best restructuring attorneys in the market today. He manages to excel at overall strategy while also remaining well-versed in the details. He also succeeds where many others fail at working through complex multi-party negotiations.’

‘As a group of lawyers, they are astute, diplomatic but tough; they are willing to lead. Tom Lauria is one of the top 3 lawyers that I have worked with during my 37-year career. He demonstrates incredible range in multiple disciplines including bankruptcy, capital markets and board room presentations. He is a dominating lawyer who is intellectually curious and is flat-out unrelenting in his approach.’

‘I have worked with many Associates and Partners over the years and Mark Franke truly stands out. If I had to summarize the characteristics that lead me to that conclusion it would be the following: (i) encyclopaedic knowledge of the law and all of the pertinent issues related to bankruptcy and restructuring, (ii) he is a master tactician and comes up with the appropriate strategies at critical times (iii) creative thinker who contributes to all conversations, (iv) available 24 hours a day – literally (v) has natural client skills and (vi) perhaps, most importantly is a unique combination of items i – v. I would be willing to add him to an advisory roster on any situation.’

‘Mark Franke stands out. He keeps his head calm in heated moments. A soft spoken authority, who is clearly a good negotiator in addition to being an excellent lawyer.’

‘Mark Franke is a young upcoming star. He focuses on the big picture, knows how to brings people together to achieves consensus, and is a strong litigator when settlement is not possible.’

‘Mark Franke has become a trusted advisor who can not only provide quality legal advice on complicated issues, but has been very helpful in marshalling the resources of the firm as a whole on cross-practice questions/problems. He is responsive, proactive, and practical.’

‘Outside the box thinkers. High level of imagination to structure transactions for clients and/or litigate on behalf of clients. Very committed to the needs of clients by being on call for any needs and rapidly responding. Well rounded and provide a large number of services, yet also provide the detailed attention that one gets at smaller firms.’

‘Highly knowledgeable with the best skill set to find constructive solutions in challenging situations.’

‘Work as a fully integrated team. Bring in global resources seamlessly. Aggressive advocates for their clients. Highly professional.’

‘Large strong team that has special expertise in cross border matters. Strong litigators.’

‘The firm is super responsive, always trying to find ways to help and add value to the client, particularly in time sensitive situations. It is very helpful to have a firm that understands the commercial impact of timely advice, and the firm works carefully to help prioritize, triage, and act.’

‘I have worked with a team from White & Case led by Tom Lauria. The firm has brought to bear specialists in each area that was required to restructure our business. In addition to the depth of subject matter experts, a strength is the leadership and hands-on approach of Tom Lauria. He drives a high performance team and is not inhibited from dealing with very complex and demanding facts. I also found him to provide his opinion beyond a matter of law to assist management and the board in forging an appropriate measured course of action.’

‘They work as a high performance team, are incredibly flexible and responsive and are true subject matter experts. The inspire confidence within our board and are typically thinking out far ahead, considering when and how to pivot if necessary.’

‘W&C’s international presence and ample experience with restructuring, including those with other Brazilian companies, facilitated the coordination of the process and were fundamental in reconciling the NY legal issues with the Brazilian, Austrian and BVI ones. The cross border transaction never seemed to be a new challenge for the team. Quite the opposite, W&C made this interaction seamless. Having the proximity of the capital markets practice was also an enormous asset given the need to negotiate and issue new “restructuring” notes.’

‘Since 2016 the W&C restructuring team has been engaged in order to help the company with discussions among its creditors and then with its judicial reorganization process. In this whole process, I could perceive all necessary skills and expertise from the team. Not only knowledge and full experience conducting cross-border judicial reorganization process, but also connecting a full service team, that handles litigation and capital market deals. It was amazing to count on one law firm to help us conduct all this throughout the US, Netherlands, Portugal, the Bahamas and Brazil.’

‘Jessica Boelter is an incredibly talented lawyer who knows the ins and outs of bankruptcy, has exceptional vision and is brutally honest when she needs to be. She is great on her feet and inspires confidence. She is always available and responsive. She understands our goals and values and incorporates them into her approach.’

‘Harrison Denman shows high attention to detail, is very creative at looking at liability management structures, has a high level of imagination when dealing with situations where the client needs someone to either litigate for an outcome or protect from certain litigation in bankruptcy, is well connected with people in the industry and is a superb deal-maker with the skills to litigate when needed but also facilitate a deal for clients. Chris Shore is extremely diligent when litigating matters for clients, and is very good at summarizing and articulating complicated legal strategies for clients understanding and decision making.’

‘Working with White & Case, with Aaron Colody one of the principal points of contact on an extremely complicated public company bankruptcy. Aaron and the team are tireless and responsive, and able to handle significant volume and complexity.’

Energy transactions: conventional power Tier 2

Able to tap into the expertise of M&A and finance practitioners with deep underlying knowledge of the energy infrastructure sector, irrespective of the type of power generation plant, White & Case LLP has a particularly strong market position advising infrastructure funds, including Carlyle Power Partners and Antin Infrastructure Partners, on their acquisitions, disposals, and the accompanying financing necessary to fund these power-related transactions. Recent highlights include advising Antin Infrastructure on its  $1.25bn acquisition of Veolia Group's district energy assets in the US. The team, which is led out of New York by Nandan Nelivigi, is also regularly instructed by high-profile lenders, including BNP Paribas and Morgan Stanley, which are appreciative of the firm's ability to provide 'effective and commercial' advice on conventional power projects implementing financing techniques throughout the capital structure. Legendary project finance partner Arthur Scavone has developed a particular niche advising lead arrangers on TLB transactions in the domestic power sector, while internationally he excels at handling work for ECAs on the financing of emerging markets projects. Michael Shenberg has an excellent reputation among financial and strategic investors on M&A mandates within the electricity sector, both in relation to acquisitions and sales of large portfolios and single-asset deals.

Energy transactions: oil and gas Tier 2

White & Case LLP's energy-focused Houston office has quickly gained market share, since its establishment in 2018, as a result of some apt hires (the most recent of which was the arrival at the beginning of 2020 of Mingda Zhao and Emery Choi from Vinson & Elkins LLP) it is well positioned to advise private equity investors, independent and national oil companies, and banks, across the waterfront of oil and gas-related M&A, operational and finance transactions. As well as handling an increasing volume of domestic instructions, due in no small part to the firm's growth out of Houston, the firm also remains a regular presence on big-ticket, cross-border energy mandates, where it is able to effectively leverage broader project development and finance competences, as well as resources spread throughout the firm's vast international network. Jay Cuclis is noted for his work in the upstream and LNG sectors, in particular; he co-heads the firm's oil and gas group. Steven Tredennick alongside New York-based partner Elena Millerman lead the US initiative. All practitioners named are based in Houston unless otherwise indicated.

Testimonials

‘White & Case has provided the best legal services that our ten-year old environmental nonprofit organization has ever experienced. They are a superior legal team. White & Case provided pro bono legal services to our environmental nonprofit organization. They helped us to negotiate two consulting services agreements concurrently with a publicly traded corporation. In this negotiation, we were David vs. Goliath. With legal counsel from White & Case, we successfully protected our organization’s needs and obtained the language and provisions that we sought in this negotiation. Their overall service was superlative. Short of curing COVID, White & Case could do nothing more to improve its services for us.’

‘With respect to innovations, White & Case is a leader in corporate ESG advisory services, which are of particular interest to our environmental organization.’

‘Laury Mulry is our primary attorney and is supported by partner Seth Kerschner. They provided outstanding legal counsel throughout our negotiations, which took more than two years. Laura’s thorough legal assessments and wise guidance enabled us to maintain firm but reasonable positions on these issues. She was also highly professional, poised, and perceptive with a counter-party that was mercurial and frustrating at times throughout the negotiations.’

Further, the group is well versed in economic sanctions and export controls issues, which are areas of focus for Cristina Brayton-Lewis and Nicole Erb. Farhad Jalinous leads the firm’s CFIUS practice.

Testimonials

‘Too often outside firms analyze issues/risk only from a strictly legal point of view and miss the broader picture or goals at hand. In contrast, this team has a strong understanding of in-house needs and the complexities involved with global technology companies. Problems require multi-faceted and creative solutions that work for all areas of a business (e.g., BD, engineering, product, marketing, etc.), and White & Case is able to consistently provide comprehensive goal-oriented advice that goes beyond just stellar legal counsel.’

‘Daren Orzechowski and Yixin (Yish) Gong. Each have the ability to takeover and run strategic complex technology and licensing deals, handling not only the negotiation and drafting, but also helping to manage the internal chaos and minutia of product development at the company. Always reliable and prompt, impeccable work product, and truly amazing persons with whom I enjoy working.’

‘One of the greatest challenges for in-house counsel is communicating enough of the internal business context to enable outside counsel to effectively and efficiently add value and avoid duplicating work. Daren Orzechowski and his technology transactions team consistently add value to their projects. They are more than external legal advisors providing expertise and responding to specific requests ’

‘Daren Orzechowski knows the tech and IP space inside and out, from years of experience negotiating bet-the-company type deals with the biggest players in the space.’

Justin Wagstaff leads the global borrower practice, which primarily works with private equity sponsors and their portfolio companies, though is more than capable of assisting other types of corporate borrowers. Though the team is spread across numerous offices, New York is the location of the largest practice and includes key names such as David Ridley. The department saw some departures in 2021, with former practice head Jake Mincemoyer and Joseph Furst joining Allen & Overy LLP, and Nicholas Palumbo moving to Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP.

Key partners and associates are always available on a moment’s notice and have the knowledge to answer things immediately, and senior representatives at the firm are equally accessible and in the know on details.

Latin America: International firms > Capital markets Tier 1

White & Case LLP has a tremendous record in the region's larger markets, particularly Brazil, and to a slightly lesser degree Mexico. Yet it has further augmented its position in Peru and Colombia, along with secondary markets such as Ecuador and Paraguay, thanks -in part- to the sheer size of the Latin America capital markets team and its longstanding commitment to the region. The firm was also a major force in Argentina before the recent collapse in capital markets activity. The team covers a breadth of capital markets products, from straight equity to high yield debt, project bonds and liability management. It has expanded its senior ranks in the last few years with the hire of senior figure Taisa Markus in 2018 and the elevation of Sao Paulo's John Guzman and New York's Bibiana Jaimes to the partnership. Other younger partners such as project finance specialist Thomas Pate have helped to grow the project bonds element of the practice. The firm continues to be recognised for its almost peerless issuer client base in Brazil, thanks in no small part to the presence of Sao Paulo-office founding partner Donald Baker, who has been based there since 1997. It maintains excellent connections to investment banks such as Goldman Sachs with global head of capital markets John Vetterli having a particularly pivotal role in these relationships. All named individuals are based in New York unless stated otherwise.

Latin America: International firms > Corporate and M&A Tier 2

White & Case LLP‘s aggressive expansion of its Latin America department has delivered considerable rewards in the M&A segment. Team additions in New York and Houston have made a significant difference, notably in private equity and infrastructure funds transactions, and in the energy and infrastructure sectors. Rodrigo Dominguez and William Parish joined the Houston office from Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP in April 2019 to reinforce the firm’s standing in oil and gas, power, renewables and infrastructure deals. Marwan Azzi's earlier arrival in 2018 has already seen the firm grow its position in private equity and infrastructure funds, most notably for clients such as I Squared Capital Advisors. Azzi has closed a series of headline deals in Chile, Colombia and Peru, including advising Sempra Energy on the $3.59bn sale of its equity interests in its Peruvian businesses to China Yangtze Power International in September 2019. Moreover, the gradual expansion of the Houston office has also positioned the firm prominently for oil and gas deals in Latin America, particularly in Mexico. Global co-head of private equity Oliver Brahmst is also active in the region on behalf of clients such as Brookfield Asset Management; he also led the team that advised Odebrecht on its $1.39bn sale of the 456MW Chaglla hydroelectric power plant in Peru to a consortium led by China Three Gorges. Donald Baker in Sao Paulo, continues to play an anchor role in developing and maintaining Brazilian client relationships, working on key deals such as advising on Vale’s $550m acquisition of Ferrous Resources. Since publication, Azzi has moved to Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, effective as of August 2021.
