IPOs & Direct Listings

Companies making their stock-market debut turn to us for our unrivaled record of IPO success and smooth execution across industries and continents.

We advised issuers and underwriters on more than 700 initial public offerings around the globe since 2012. Whether an IPO raises $100 million or $1 billion, we recognize it is a transformational transaction for the issuer that requires extreme attention to detail, close collaboration with multiple parties and flawless execution. Companies benefit from our close working relationships with regulators and market participants worldwide. Clients rely on our lawyers to provide constructive advice and creative solutions that are informed by our large volume of transactions.

In addition to traditional IPOs, we were instrumental in designing the legal architecture for direct listings and have advised on some of the largest direct listings to date. 

We work closely with colleagues in areas including Executive Compensation and Tax to ensure a smooth transition to public ownership.
