Debt Capital Markets

Providing solutions in an uncertain economic climate


In the rapidly changing economic climate, financing via the debt capital markets has become more prominent as a cost-effective alternative to traditional debt raising, with issuers now able to obtain more favourable terms from lenders. This brings new opportunities as well as new challenges for market participants.

Our debt capital markets (“DCM”) team works closely with banks, corporates, sovereigns and supranationals across a wide range of DCM products, including:

  • Investment grade issues
  • Emerging markets issues
  • High yield
  • Regulatory capital issues
  • Debt issuance programmes
  • Liability management transactions
  • Private placements

Our team of DCM experts, comprising experienced partners and associates, advises both issuers and managers on complex and innovative debt capital markets transactions in developed and emerging markets.

We consistently receive positive feedback from clients praising the team for its hands-on approach from partners and its ability to provide timely, cost-effective expert legal advice on a broad range of DCM transactions.
