Notable practitioners

Managing partner Antonio Coletti is described by sources as a "reference point" within capital markets and is commended for both his ability and experience in the field. His broad practice includes expertise in IPOs, accelerated bookbuilding processes and high-yield issuances.

Jeffrey Lawlis wins praise from sources for his expertise in high-yield bond transactions. Qualified in both Italy and the USA, he assists clients with a range of cross-border DCM work. Sources report: "You can do extremely difficult deals with him and he will deliver, he'll figure out a way. He's hard-working, efficient and careful with the deals: nothing falls through the cracks."

Ryan Benedict has particular experience representing issuers and underwriters in DCM mandates. He played a key role on new client Gruppo Pro-Gest's EUR250 million inaugural bond issuance.
