Our Global Reach
We understand the complexities faced by issuers and corporate advisers involved in multi-jurisdictional equity capital markets transactions and secondary listings and have extensive cross boarder experience.
We act for clients that are listed on, and are therefore subject to, the rules and regulations of other global stock exchanges. In addition, many of our equity capital markets clients are incorporated outside of the United Kingdom or have international business interests (the attached map illustrates the locations of some of our clients’ business operations).
