Seward & Kissel Adds Hewitt to Global Banking and Corporate Trust Group

Ronald A. Hewitt, who formerly worked for Covington & Burling, joined Seward & Kissel’s New York office as a partner in the global banking and corporate trust group.

In a tenure spanning nearly two decades at Covington, Hewitt represented institutional clients in all aspects of finance, corporate restructuring, capital markets and derivative transactions, as well as related regulatory compliance. His work included advising administrative and collateral agents on credit facilities and other complex financings, as well as counseling indenture trustees and escrow agents in high-yield debt issuances, acquisitions, exchange transactions and bankruptcy court proceedings. Hewitt also advises corporate debt issuers and end-users on hedging transactions.

“Ron’s breadth of expertise in non-distressed and distressed financial transactions immediately strengthens our team in the global banking and corporate trust group,” Jim Cofer, managing partner of Seward & Kissel, said. “He has seen it all when it comes to structuring complex deals for private and public companies alike.”

“Ron’s commercial approach to solving complex issues and his focus on delivering elite client service squarely align with the group’s core values,” Gregg Bateman, head of Seward & Kissel’s global banking and corporate trust group, said. “After years of admiring his work from across the table, we are thrilled to have Ron join our team.”
