Eric Reimer
Partner, Los Angeles

Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy announced that experienced corporate finance lawyer  Eric Reimer has joined the firm’s Los Angeles office as a  partner.

The move is a homecoming for Mr. Reimer, who was an associate  and later senior counsel at Milbank from 1990-99. He arrives from O’Melveny  & Myers, where he was Chair of the Corporate Finance practice.

Mr.  Reimer counsels clients in all types of corporate financings, including  leveraged acquisitions, credit facilities, and restructuring-related  financings. He has represented private equity firms, corporate issuers,  lenders and borrowers with a particular focus on the healthcare, education,  tech, retail and transportation sectors.

In returning to Milbank, Mr.  Reimer will be in high demand across the firm.  Milbank’s corporate and  securities groups are active in the U.S., as well as Europe, Asia and Latin  America.  Among noteworthy transactions this past year, the firm  represented underwriters in Verizon’s $49 billion bond offering, the largest  corporate debt offering on record.  In addition to handling frequent  large cross-border M&A deals, Milbank advises on major transactions  through its leading bankruptcy group, which also plays into Mr. Reimer’s  strengths.

Milbank Chair Scott Edelman noted of Mr. Reimer's  return, “Eric is a highly versatile transactional attorney with an  accomplished history of advising on notable deals, securities offerings and  restructurings.  We are pleased to welcome him back to Milbank, where his  knowledge and experience will complement our robust corporate finance  capabilities, particularly in the institutional lending, investment and  restructuring practices on the West Coast.”

Some of Mr. Reimer’s  prominent transactions include:

  • Representation of a hedge fund in the  restructuring of approximately $1 billion of bonds issued by a wireless  provider and related spin off of certain assets to the hedge funds and sale of  the wireless provider to a leading telecommunications company.
  • Representation of a lender in its $4.5 billion secured financing of a casino  operator.
  • Representation of a publicly traded tobacco and real estate  holding company in connection with the issuance in numerous transactions of  over $1.1 billion of high yield secured and unsecured debt and convertible  bonds.
  • Representation of investment advisors and private equity funds  in numerous credit facilities to U.S., European and Asian investment funds, in  connection with debt and equity acquisitions, restructurings and  recapitalizations and in financings for portfolio companies and multiple exit  transactions, totaling in excess of $5 billion.
  • Representing a  leading security and investigations firm in its $900 million international  high-yield public debt offering and bank credit facility.
  • Advising a  Canadian drugstore chain in its $3 billion financing of the acquisition of a  US pharmacy chain.

“Eric is a gifted deal adviser with an  extraordinarily diverse checklist of transactions under his belt,” said Ken  Baronsky, managing partner of Milbank’s Los Angeles office.  “His  successful track record in so many areas of corporate finance, and his  experience in leading large, international teams in leveraged finance, capital  markets, restructurings and even project finance make him an exceptional  addition to our group. It’s great to extend him a big welcome back to  Milbank.”

Mr. Reimer said, “It’s a great pleasure to return to Milbank,  where I earned my stripes as a corporate finance attorney and learned early on  the benefits of working in a wide range of transactions.  I look forward  to renewing ties with old colleagues and working with Milbank’s outstanding  group of deal lawyers, while offering the firm’s clients a full array of  transactional advice on a global scale.”

A longtime source of finance  commentary for publications including The Wall Street Journal, The Deal,  Euromoney magazine, and The Los Angeles Daily Journal, Mr. Reimer is also  widely published on topics such as acquisition finance; insolvencies,  restructurings, and defaults; project finance; private equity; and other  topics.

Mr. Reimer earned his law degree from the University of  California, Hastings, College of the Law, and a B.S. in Business  Administration from the University of Southern California.

Mr. Reimer  is the second noteworthy alumnus to return to Milbank this year.  In  February, former Milbank partner George Canellos, who earlier stepped  down as co-Director of Enforcement at the Securities & Exchange  Commission, announced he was rejoining Milbank as Global Head of the  Litigation Department.
