Assisting clients to access capital and transact in the capital markets

Our capital markets team has extensive experience of assisting clients to raise funds through the issuance of equity and debt instruments, and advises on the full range of transactions on the capital markets.

We regularly advise companies seeking to IPO or make secondary offering whether on an international or domestic stock exchange.

We work closely with our colleagues from areas such as real estate, tax, regulatory and finance and our detailed sector focus means we understand the company's business and the sphere in which it operates.

Our experience means we can provide invaluable assistance to companies as they prepare to go public, or raise further capital, ensuring transactions run as smoothly as possible and obtaining quick resolutions to issues if they arise.
