Our team of over 20 capital markets lawyers is a recognised market leader and our strength is demonstrated by top-tier rankings from all major independent international legal directories.

  • We regularly advise on the largest and most complex capital market transactions and have been at the forefront of the development of new and innovative capital market products for many years.

  • We also support our clients in complying with their ongoing obligations as public companies and other securities and regulatory matters.
  • The high volume and complexity of the transactions our capital markets lawyers are exposed to ensure that we keep abreast of breaking issues and developments in securities laws and capital markets and allow us to leverage this expertise to the benefit of our clients.
