Eric LeichtWhite & Case LLP

White & Case LLP is notable for its breadth of expertise, with equal strengths advising large investment banks and direct lenders, and borrowers and funds. The global debt finance group is chaired by Eric Leicht, who has a very close relationship with key client Deutsche Bank, having worked with the client to develop innovative pricing models. 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.
