Justin WagstaffWhite & Case LLP

White & Case LLP ‘has a very strong team and is extremely knowledgeable in middle market LBO financing’, advising traditional and alternative lenders as well as borrowers on a range of complex transactions. Global debt finance head Eric Leicht  operates from the New York office,  as does regional lead Eliza McDougall, though the practice also has a significant West Coast presence. Justin Wagstaff  plays a key role in the borrower side practice, which represents corporations, private equity sponsors and their portfolio companies in acquisition financing. As a recent example, the firm assisted CVC Capital Partners and The Carlyle Group with the financing elements of the $1.15bn acquisition of Medrisk, LLC. The department saw a number of departures in 2021: Heather Borthwick departed in January, while Nicholas PalumboJake Mincemoyer , and Gordon Mak left in March and May respectively, while Rebecca Gottlieb departed for an in-house position in November. In response, Kerrick Seay, Nicole Rodger and Christoffer Adler were promoted to partner in January 2022, while up-and coming partner Binoy Dharia continues to build a strong reputation in the market.
