Mayer Brown JSM advised Trade and Development Bank of Mongolia LLC on its landmark deal, which won “High Yield Deal of the Year” at the IFLR Asia Awards 2016 in Hong Kong last week. The firm acted as U.S. and English legal counsel, and advised on structuring and issuance aspects of its US$500 million 9.375% senior notes due 2020, which notes were guaranteed by the Ministry of Finance of Mongolia. This latest award follows the deal’s win in the same category at FinanceAsia’s Achievement Awards 2015.
The team was led by Jason T. Elder, a firmwide practice leader of Mayer Brown’s Corporate & Securities group, and included Banking & Finance partners Stephen Walsh, James Taylor and Trevor Wood (London); Tax Transactions & Consulting partner Jason Bazar and associate Maurice Worsley (New York); and Hong Kong-based Corporate & Securities Registered Foreign Lawyers Karen Chong, Stephanie Mills and Ashley Chow. The firm is also delighted to announce that Ashley also won the “Rising Star” award for high-yield debt in connection with her role on this transaction.
Mayer Brown JSM remains proud of its long-standing position in Mongolia, and its strong experience and extensive track record representing issuers in cross-border capital markets transactions from this frontier jurisdiction.
