Defining global capital markets transactions

Share

Issuers, major shareholders and underwriters of capital markets transactions benefit from lawyers who understand the global markets, shape regulation and advise on the most complex and innovative deals.

On high-profile and cross-border initial public offerings and listings we provide our clients with multijurisdictional advice and proven technical expertise to ensure compliance with evolving regulatory practices. We are at the forefront of regulation and practice and in constant dialogue with regulatory bodies. From this perspective, we form opinions and advise on the impact of evolving law, regulation and practice on transactions, current and prospective.

We work with issuers, shareholders and underwriters, including all of the major market intermediaries, on the full range of equity and equity-linked transactions across global jurisdictions. These include complex and innovative offerings of securities, initial public offerings and secondary fundraisings and many of them form part of broader and sophisticated refinancings, acquisition financings and restructurings.
