Capital Markets: Equity and Debt

Finance and debt structures have become increasingly complex. We now also operate in a very different environment where funding is provided from a diverse range of non-conventional sources whilst bank lending has failed. That is why businesses rely on us to help them meet challenges head-on and ensure they can meet critical deadlines.

We have considerable experience in advising UK and international issuers and brokers, sponsors and nominated advisers on raising equity on the Official List, AIM, the NEX Exchange and foreign exchanges – in addition to expertise in IPOs, secondary placings, global offerings and rights issues.

We regularly advise Indian listed companies on the English law aspects relating to the admission of global depositary receipts to trading on European markets, thereby helping the issuers efficiently access international capital markets.

We advise listed and traded companies on their continuing obligations, in particular on corporate governance for smaller quoted companies.*
In addition, we provide advice on restructurings and reorganisations – including demergers and schemes of arrangement. We also advise private companies on fundraising through private placements.

Alongside our equity work we have significant experience in advising clients in relation to listed debt arrangements, including securities admitted to both the Luxembourg Stock Exchange and the International Stock Exchange, and governance arrangements to support complex collateralised debt arrangements.
