High-Yield Debt

Companies and underwriters seek our services on many of the largest and most complex high-yield debt offerings.

We regularly rank among the leading advisers to U.S. and non-U.S. issuers and underwriters on the issuance of high-yield debt – both SEC-registered offerings and those under Rule 144A / Regulation S.

Clients retain our lawyers because of the creativity and insight we bring to these transactions. For example, we helped pioneer the technique of privately placing notes under Rule 144A and following with a registered exchange offer, a strategy now used in a majority of all high-yield financings.

We work closely with our Finance colleagues on leveraged finance transactions. Corporate borrowers and financial institutions count on us to seamlessly execute highly complex leveraged finance transactions across private and public markets.
