What the team is known for

Celebrated global outfit benefiting from considerable knowledge of cross-border Latin American securities transactions, especially those concerning Brazil. Highly sought after by both issuers and underwriters for its expertise in major SEC-registered and unregistered offerings. Routinely instructed to advise on such debt matters as bond issuances and debt reorganisation. Also called upon to assist with IPOs, secondary offerings and follow-on offerings.

Strengths

Full of praise for the service, interviewees state: "They have a very quick turnaround, and are super responsive and always available. They are experienced, understand business and work hard; they are exactly what we are looking for in our lawyers."

Work highlights

Assisted Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley and Citigroup as underwriters with the USD789.75 million public offering of Class A common shares by certain selling shareholders of Stone Co.

Notable practitioners

Peers are quick to praise Donald Baker for his superlative knowledge of the Brazilian market, with one attesting: "Don has an amazing reputation in Brazil and knows that market back to front." Speaking to his experience in the field, one client notes: "Don is the one I go to for something super important." He has a broad practice advising issuers and underwriters on the spectrum of registered and unregistered equity offerings, as well as liability management transactions.

John Guzman is "a great lawyer and very well known in the market," one source reports, while another describes him as "hands-on, constructive and very experienced in equity offerings." Guzman focuses his practice on the Brazilian market primarily, advising notable issuers and initial purchasers on a mixture of privately placed and SEC-registered debt and equity deals.

John Vetterli is widely recognised for his considerable expertise in the capital markets arena, with one client saying: "He has a ton of experience and skill."
