Milbank adds special counsel Michael Garcia to global securities practice in New York

Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy has appointed Michael “Ben” Garcia as special counsel in the firm’s global securities practice group in the New York office.

Garcia brings corporate finance and capital markets experience to Milbank.
He regularly advises issuers and underwriters in cross-border securities offerings, with a deal book that spans from Latin America to Europe, Asia and North America.  He has counselled leading financial institutions and investment banks, as well as private equity firms and corporate issuers.  In addition to advising on debt and equity offerings, he has advised on M&A transactions, commercial financings, leveraged buyouts and IPOs.
Marcelo Mottesi, head of Milbank’s global securities group, says: “As we continue to go flat out on major capital markets transactions and related financings in key markets, we are fortunate to add Ben Garcia to the group. Ben is an extremely versatile deal adviser with a strong skill set representing stakeholders across the spectrum of corporate finance. And he brings particular experience in Europe, where many of our financial institution clients are based. Our team will greatly benefit from his presence.”
“Milbank has long been a destination firm for top capital markets work and I’ve been well aware of its stature in Latin America and Asia in particular,” says Garcia.  “It’s an honour to join Milbank’s securities group – I’m excited about the opportunity to further grow my practice here.”
Garcia comes to Milbank on the heels of new corporate finance partner Eric Reimer, who joined the Los Angeles office earlier this month from O’Melveny & Myers, where he had been chair of the corporate finance practice.
