For our July cover story, The Real Deal‘s Rich Bockmann and Mark Maurer went behind the scenes at Cushman & Wakefield, which filed a preliminary prospectus for its initial public offering last month.

The leadup to the brokerage’s IPO has caused immense internal disorder and confusion, insider​s​ told TRD. This could spell trouble for Cushman, which is banking on a successful Wall Street debut to help offload some of the $3B in debt TPG Capital dumped on the firm following ​a series of mergers and acquisitions.

TRD’s senior content director Jill Noonan sat down with Maurer and Bockmann to talk about the state of the firm, morale among its brokers ​and more in the video above.
