Equity Capital Markets Lawyers

What We Do

We support transactions for institutional and corporate clients throughout the UK, providing City expertise from our national network of offices. Our equity capital markets lawyers have experience of advising on all sides of a typical transaction (investors, issuers and underwriters).

Our Equity Capital Markets team advises on:

  • IPOs
  • Secondary fundraisings (including placings, rights offers and open offers)
  • Takeovers
  • Compliance and governance for quoted companies

How We Can Help

Whether launching a company on the stock exchange, raising capital, or getting listed on overseas exchanges, our team has the experience and commercial skill to support you.

As a result of our experience working on different sides of equity transactions, we have in-depth knowledge of the likely obstacles which will be thrown up. We use this experience to create pragmatic solutions that will be agreeable to all parties.
