Faiza Rahman Named 2016 Law360 Rising Star for Capital Markets

Weil partner Faiza Rahman has been named one of Law360’s 2016 “Rising Stars” for Capital Markets in recognition of her work advising banks and issuers in a wide range of equity and debt transactions.

Law360’s profile article highlighted her role representing Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, Inc. in its $164 million IPO and advising the lead arrangers in securing the mezzanine financing of Hellman & Friedman’s multibillion-dollar buyout of Bain Capital’s stake in Securitas Direct. “What continues to impress me about our capital markets team is that we’re always working on the most significant, complicated transactions for our clients,” Ms. Rahman stated.

The profile noted that Ms. Rahman “grew up” at Weil. Further, she has enjoyed the challenging work she has been able to do because, as she noted, “When you come to a firm like Weil, the deals are never going to be simple or easy.”

Each year, Law360 reviews more than 1,000 nominations for the “Rising Star” distinction. Ms. Rahman is among attorneys under the age of 40 who have made tremendous professional strides and demonstrated great accomplishments in the legal field.

Weil’s Capital Markets practice was also recognized as a Law360 2015 “Practice Group of the Year” for leading several high-profile transactions.
