Extremely good in emerging markets’, White & Case LLP is best known for its impressive record in Latin America-related deals. Its extensive international reach also encompasses strong footholds across Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Sources attest that the firm fields ‘a seamlessly coordinated global team that is available and responsive around the clock’ and praise its ‘clear subject-matter expertise’ and ‘total commitment to getting complex deals across the line’. John Vetterli, regional head of the Americas capital markets practice, recently teamed up with the Sao Paulo office to advise Argentina’s Loma Negra on its $1.1bn IPO. Vetterli also acted alongside emerging markets specialist Colin Diamond, noted for his ‘broad knowledge and out-of-the-box thinking’, to advise the underwriters on the $1.4bn IPO and Nasdaq listing of Brazil-headquartered StoneCo. On the debt side, Andrew Weisberg, with support from the London office, advised the underwriters on a $4.7bn notes offering by Syngenta Finance. Other senior names in the New York-based group are John Donovan and Holt Goddard.
