Capital markets: equity offerings

Within: Capital markets: equity offerings

Clifford Chance’s New York-based practice, which is weighted towards underwriter-side work, excels in REIT-related offerings in line with its signature strength. The firm’s premier cross-border capability also marks it as ‘a leader in coordinating global offerings’. In a deal that showcases both of its sweet spots, Jason Myers and department co-chair Kathleen Werner advised the underwriters on China-headquartered HNA Tourism Group’s secondary offering of common stock of Park Hotels & Resorts. In another multi-jurisdictional highlight, Jake Farquharson advised the underwriters on the $890m IPO of Mexican energy and infrastructure investment trust, CFE Fibra E, which marked the first Fibra E securities to be sold in the US and international capital markets. Jonathan Zonis co-heads a department that also includes the ‘exceptionally strategic’ Hugo Triaca, who recently joined from Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.
