McCarthy Tétrault’s capital markets team is complemented by the firm’s top-tier banking and finance practice and strong institutional bank relationships. As such, the group has been called ‘the strongest practice on the street‘ when it comes to underwriter-side work; though the team also routinely advises corporate and financial services clients as issuers on public and private offerings. The team is well versed in both debt and equity deals, but is differentiated in part by the strength of its structured finance practice, where is is routinely involved in high-profile debt transactions, including covered bonds and maple bonds. Contacts in Toronto include national capital markets co-head Andrew Parker, who has an impressive record in debt and equity offerings, and Marc MacMullin, who heads the financial services group and is a favourite with banks to assist with their structured finance, asset-backed securities and covered bond transactions. A recent highlight for MacMullin involved advising HSBC Bank Canada on its $1bn covered bond issuance. Other recommended names in Toronto are structured finance co-head Dean Masse; Jo-Anna Brimmer, who focuses on securitization, covered bonds and debt capital markets; and ‘stand-out associate’ Christopher Bamford. In Montréal, capital markets co-head Patrick Boucher is highly regarded for his combination of securities and corporate expertise, and recently advised the National Bank of Canada, as issuer, on the renewal of its $10bn euro note programme.
