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 advise on the full range of capital markets transactions, including equity, investment-grade and high-yield debt and derivatives. We have substantial experience in the most complex securities offerings that require highly creative and sophisticated advice, such as novel equity derivative products and cross-border, multi-listed IPOs.
Our extensive experience with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) provides clear insight into regulatory considerations in offerings of all types; this has frequently enabled us to obtain regulatory relief for our clients. Our leadership in capital markets 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, and most recently the 2008 Emergency Economic Stimulus Act (EESA), Troubled Asset Repurchase Program (TARP) and the JOBS Act.
