We have a large capital markets team in Europe, with genuine cross-border capability, and a strong presence in Asia and the Middle East. The team advises on transactions involving public companies engaged in European and global securities offerings, providing advice on both debt and equity matters. The team acts for listed companies, their sponsors, nominated advisers, brokers and investment bankers across all types of European securities offerings and undertakes all aspects of related advisory and compliance work.
Our international capital markets experts work as one integrated team on a range of international securities transactions and offerings including IPOs, secondary issues, public M&A, tender offers, bond offerings, and restructurings.
We have public company specialists in the UK, Germany, France, Central & Eastern Europe, Dubai and Hong Kong who can advise on the additional regulatory requirements and market practices that arise in public company takeovers. We have wide experience in advising on the implementation of take-over strategies in the light of rules which, for example, aim to ensure transparency and fairness between shareholders. Our work includes core areas such as takeover regulation, applicable local corporate laws and financial regulations, and takeover defence.
We advise across many sectors and are especially well-regarded for our experience in the technology and media sectors.
