We offer one of the leading specialist equity capital market legal teams based in the UK and operating globally. Offering market-leading expertise across IPOs, fundraisings, takeovers, M&A and private equity transactions involving public companies, as well as specialist advice in corporate governance and securities regulation, we have a distinctly approachable style.
In all areas of our work, we’re known for our extensive experience of ECM transactions (including as a regular adviser to investment banks on ECM transactions). Our ability to anticipate the key issues that are important – both to you and an investment bank – sets us apart. Project management, grounded in experience, is an integral part of the way we drive each deal to ensure timelines and budgets are adhered to.
Whether maintaining good relations with market participants, regulators and industry bodies, adding value by introducing our clients to other advisers (such as investment banks, financial advisers and accounting firms) and benchmarking and negotiating their terms of engagement, or simply getting on with managing your transaction, our approach is complete, energetic, decisive and clear.
