United States > Finance > Capital markets: high-yield

The practice at Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP is significantly weighted towards manager-side matters and it is often engaged by major bulge bracket banks. The firm also handles issuer-side work, particularly in its industry sweet spots of energy, utilities, gaming and healthcare. Among its other distinguishing factors, the group’s solid project finance offering positions it to advise on complex project financings completed through the issuance of high-yield notes. In Houston, Henry Havre is noted for his strong activity in energy-related high-yield offerings, where he represents issuers, underwriters and private equity funds. Houston-based Michael O’Leary co-heads the firm’s corporate team and is also noted for energy-related transactions. The capital markets department is co-led by Susan Failla and Peter O’Brien in New York, together with Houston-based Courtney Cochran Butler and Richmond’s David Wright.
