We also provide crucial ongoing advice to companies already operating in the public arena.
Clients need the highest quality service in an ever-evolving legal and regulatory environment. Our team has genuine sector expertise, meaning we can respond to the specific needs and character of clients in a wide variety of sectors.
Transactions often involve a cross-border element, which requires a co-ordinated and unified approach from our international network of offices. Our advice covers the full range of equity financing transactions including initial public offerings on key international exchanges (including London, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore), rights issues, placings and other secondary offerings, capital reorganisations, reverse takeovers and public takeovers and mergers.
