Interested in learning more about how sovereign debt is issued and marketed? Want to know more about the evolution of sovereign debt terms and structure in the wake of high-profile litigation over sovereign defaults?

The Yale Law & Business Society is excited to announce that Christopher L. Mann and Werner Federico Ahlers ’05, partners at Sullivan & Cromwell LLP, joined by Renata Mascarenhas and Joaquin Perez Alati, will be giving their take on the Latest Developments in Sovereign Finance on Tuesday, April 13 from 12:10-1:00 PM. Their presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.

This presentation will largely be focused on Latin American sovereign financings. Sullivan & Cromwell lawyers have helped develop several legal techniques to improve the ability of Latin American sovereign borrowers to issue debt, such as Brady Bonds and collective action clauses, as part of a G-10 working group. The firm continues to develop these techniques—as well as others, such as pari passu clauses—in the US market. Sullivan & Cromwell acts as designated underwriters’ counsel for sovereign financings by Brazil, Columbia, Mexico and Panama, as well as the Central American Bank for Economic Integration and Fondo Latinoamericano de Reservas.
