Our capital markets practice is ranked among the world’s best. Leading international corporations and the world’s largest financial institutions look to our lawyers for advice on securities offerings of all kinds around the world. We have substantial experience in the most complex securities transactions that require highly creative and sophisticated advice, such as cross-border, multi-listed IPOs and complicated high-yield debt offerings.
Our extensive experience with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), NYSE, Nasdaq and other U.S. and global regulators, including in-depth contact with their senior personnel, provides clear insight into regulatory considerations in offerings of all types. Through formal and informal communications with regulators, we contribute to the shaping of regulatory policies on various issues.
Our leadership in the area of securities disclosure has put us in the position to comment with significant impact on many important financial regulatory developments throughout history, from the inception of federal securities regulation in the 1930s through developments such as Rule 144A / Regulation S, Regulation M and Sarbanes-Oxley, the Emergency Economic Stimulus Act (EESA), the Troubled Asset Repurchase Program (TARP) and the JOBS Act.
