United States > Finance > Capital markets: high-yield debt offerings

Following its high-profile combination in 2018, the newly merged Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP is included for the first time in the high-yield debt category. The manager-focused group, which is recognized for its ‘depth in the energy space’, secured a solid stream of high-yield deals over the past year, with energy, utilities and financial services standing out as the key drivers of the practice. Highlights included Houston-based Jordan Hirsch advising the initial purchasers on a three-tranche private placement of notes by Sunoco LP and Sunoco Finance Corp, which totaled $2.2bn. On the financial services front, Dallas-based Steven Leshin acted for the initial purchasers on a $700m notes offering by Freedom Mortgage Corporation. Houston-based corporate co-lead Michael O’Leary, who has a strong record in energy-related offerings, is also recommended.
