Our capital markets expertise

Acting for companies, boards of directors, financial advisers and brokers, our Capital Markets team has successfully guided clients through listings, placings, rights issues, open offers, secondaries, public and private acquisitions, disposals, reverse takeovers and shareholder disputes on the London Stock Exchange’s Main Market and AIM Market, as well as the PLUS-Quoted Market.   

Clients seeking special cross-border expertise can rely on our team to advise them on issues facing international companies accessing the London markets.

An increasing reality of the London markets is shareholder activism.   We regularly advise clients on contentious shareholder meetings and bidders and targets on Takeover Code compliance and tactics to achieve the desired result whether a successful acquisition or defence against unwelcome approaches.

Our corporate governance group, which comprises solicitors in our capital markets, tax and incentives, employment and dispute resolution teams, provides joined-up thinking and comprehensive advice to individual and company clients involved in the London markets.  We routinely advise companies and executive and non-executive directors on remuneration issues (including equity incentive arrangements), terms of appointment or departure from quoted companies, including where there are regulatory investigations at issue.
