Working together with experts in competition, disputes, employment, finance, real estate and tax, we identify and solve all challenges that may arise.

Transaction types include initial public offerings (IPOs), secondary fundraisings (including rights issues, placings and open offers), investment grade bonds, Euro medium-term note (EMTN) programmes, regulatory capital, liability management, exchangeable and convertible bonds, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)-registered offerings, high-yield bonds, Sukuk, sovereign and quasi-sovereign issues and structured securitisations (see securitisation and structured finance).
