Capital markets: debt offerings

Within: Capital markets: debt offerings

White & Case LLP’s traditionally issuer-focused practice secured an impressive volume of high-profile manager mandates during 2017. As a case in point, regional practice head John Vetterli and Andrew Weisberg advised the joint book-running managers on a $2bn cross-border bond issuance by Peruvian government-owned Petróleos del Perú. Furthermore, Gary Kashar and Colin Diamond advised the underwriting syndicate on two debt offerings by Delta Air Lines totaling $2.4bn. Walt Disney remains a trophy client on the issuer side and recently engaged the firm to advise on $6bn worth of debt issuances, including a C$1.2bn SEC-registered offering sold in Canada through private placement - Michelle Rutta led that work. The team, which is largely centered in New York, has also recently handled matters for Avangrid, Empresa de Transporte de Pasajeros Metro and Société Générale.
