Faiza is ranked in Chambers as a leading lawyer for capital markets. She advises public and private companies, investment banks, and private equity firms in a broad range of capital markets transactions, including IPOs, high yield debt offerings and restructurings, as well as corporate governance, securities law compliance, and general corporate matters.

“Faiza is a perfect fit for Ropes & Gray. Issuers, sponsors and investment banks look to Ropes & Gray’s capital markets lawyers to execute their most complex transactions. Faiza’s excellent track record handling challenging transactions for clients will deepen our ability to deliver these results for our clients,” said managing partner David Djaha.

“Faiza is a multifaceted capital markets partner with significant experience leading a broad range of transactions across industry sectors,” said Craig Marcus, co-head of the firm’s capital markets practice. “She brings deep client relationships and experience counseling on complex debt and equity transactions.”

“Ropes & Gray’s award-winning capital markets group is known for having great clients and market-leading deals,” Faiza said. “I’m excited to be joining a growing practice with a strong culture of collaboration.”
