Weil partner Lyuba Goltser has been named a 2015 Capital Markets “Rising Star” by Law360 for advising companies on a variety of public company advisory and capital markets matters throughout 2014. She was independent counsel to the audit committee during the high-profile reaudit of Herbalife’s financial statements amidst Pershing Square Capital Management’s activist campaign.
Ms. Goltser is a partner in the Firm’s Public Company Advisory Group where she advises companies on securities laws and corporate governance matters related to M&A and offers counsel to companies before they go public and through their tenure as public entities. She described the group as “the glue that binds our firm to our corporate clients after an IPO, in between [mergers and acquisitions], in between litigation.” She added, “We really collaborate, and we take an interdisciplinary approach to all of the transactional matters that we’re involved in.”
She advised several companies in their IPOs including Dave & Buster Inc.’s $100 million IPO, AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc.'s $379 million IPO, Vantiv Inc.’s $575 million IPO and the most structurally complex matter of the group - Metaldyne Performance Group Inc.’s $170 million IPO. She also she counseled Health Management Associates Inc. in its $7.6 billion sale to Community Health Systems Inc., Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. in its $3.025 billion purchase of Prestige Cruises International Inc. and DIRECTV in its pending $67 billion sale to AT&T Inc.
