The deal was led out of London and harnessed Reed Smith’s newly bolstered capabilities in the area of equity capital markets and REIT financings. The firm’s combined abilities in capital markets, financial regulation and tax, as well as its broad knowledge of the real estate sector, were required to successfully advise on the REIT-specific aspects of the fund structure.
“We were hugely excited to work on this transaction for Jefferies, which is the first IPO we have advised them on”, said Daniel Winterfeldt, US Securities and Global Capital Markets partner in London. “It was highly rewarding to collaborate across our tax, capital markets and financial regulatory teams to successfully advise on the transaction, which in turn will allow the client to further consolidate its position as a leading sponsor and broker to REITs”.
