Equity Capital Markets

We advise on the full range of equity capital markets transactions including IPOs and fundraisings, as well as advising listed businesses on their day-to-day corporate governance and compliance with applicable rules and regulations.

We also advise on corporate events for listed businesses, from consideration of a takeover offer that the board has received to advising on substantial acquisitions that the company makes. We also have deep experience in share buyback programmes and other means of returning value directly to shareholders.

Our team represents UK and non-UK-based listed companies, with sponsors, brokers and nominated advisers from across the market, and on markets including the UK Main Market and AIM. We also advise listed company directors, both as boards and in their personal capacities.

We give sensible, practical advice and know the value of responding quickly when an issue may give rise to disclosure obligations.
