High yield team picks up top honours in Europe awards.

Latham & Watkins has won two awards at the IFLR 2015 Europe Awards. Latham won High Yield Team of the Year and the firm played a lead role on the High Yield Deal of the Year, which was awarded to B Communications Ltd’s high yield offering, the first internationally marketed high yield bond from an Israeli issuer to be listed on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. A team led by London partners Scott Colwell and Richard Trobman represented J.P. Morgan, HSBC, Citigroup and Discount Underwriting and Issuing Bank, as initial purchasers, in connection with B Communications’ offering.

Richard Trobman, a corporate partner in London and member of the Executive Committee, said: “We are honoured to win these awards which are a testament to the depth of talent in the team and the cutting-edge transactions we are doing on behalf of our innovative clients.”
