Businesses seeking to IPO, quoted companies, directors, shareholders, investment banks and financial advisers rely on us for our responsive and commercial advice in today's challenging capital markets.
Floating on a stock exchange can be a complex process and a transformational milestone in a company's growth cycle. We understand that an IPO is often the beginning of a new chapter for a business, with ambitious plans to scale and grow involving further fundraisings and acquisitions. We deploy our extensive technical and project management skills to structure and lead transactions to a smooth completion, minimising execution risk and maximising cost and time efficiencies.
Our expertise includes advising on a broad range of public company transactions, including IPOs, placings, open offers and other secondary issues, takeovers (including schemes of arrangement), private M&A, joint ventures and restructurings.
Compliance with on-going obligations is important for all quoted companies and their directors, and we work collaboratively with them and their team of professional advisers to ensure these are met and to keep them up-to-date with their responsibilities in a dynamic legal, regulatory and corporate governance environment.
Our work is built upon a strong track record of transactions and an active portfolio of quoted clients and is further enhanced by secondment experience at the London Stock Exchange. We are immersed in the corporate finance community and seek to leverage our network to broker valuable introductions between our clients and contacts.
Our team has a strong track record of advising in the technology, life sciences, real estate and natural resources sectors. Many of our clients operate on an international scale, and this is reflected in our expertise spanning London's equity capital markets (Official List and AIM) and those in the Middle East.
We recently advised on the placing and AIM admission of Crossword Cybersecurity plc (AIM: CCS) and acted as lead counsel for APM Terminals Bahrain B.S.Con for an Initial Public Offering (IPO) hailed as Bahrain's most successful in 10 years.
Whatever our client’s business and wherever they are based, they know that they can rely on us for responsive and effective advice that is informed by the latest developments in the regulatory environment, market practice, and a sound grasp of their business and sector.
