Some law firms reported significant traditional transactions in banking and finance, not directly linked to M&A transactions. These include bond emissions, advisory in the re-financing of loans and so on. These references appear in the reports every year, but they tend to be the domain of not more than four law firms specializing in this area.
For instance, White & Case had the mandate from Barclay’s, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, and VÚB in the emission of state bonds of the Slovak Republic, worth €4 billion.
PRK Partners advised J&T IB and Capital Markets as the arranger and J&T Bank as the main manager of the emission of bonds of the Emma Gamma Finance company, worth €90 million. This emission was linked with the financing of the property settlement of the Czech lottery company Sazka.
