Lawyers in Baker McKenzie's Moscow office were part of the firm's multi-jurisdictional team advising arrangers and dealers Citi and J.P. Morgan and dealers Barclays, BofA Securities, and HSBC on the establishment of a USD 6.5 billion Global Medium Term Note program by VEON, a global provider of connectivity and Internet services.

Baker McKenzie also represented Citi as trustee.

The program, which was established on April 16, provides future issuance capacity across multiple currencies, which will be made by VEON at its discretion.
