As global disruption caused by COVID-19 continues to impact the global capital markets, publically listed companies and their advisers and sponsors must remain agile to sustain successful growth.
Whether you are an issuer, investment bank or investor, an AIM or main market listed company, we can support you and work seamlessly with other professionals, advisers and sponsors, both in the UK and overseas.
We will advise you on the full range of listed company transactions, including takeovers (whether by way of public takeover offer), scheme of arrangement or reverse takeover and helping clients put in place innovative equity and debt financing arrangements. As well as advising on complex cross-border transactions involving dual-listed businesses around the world and across a wide range of sectors, we have a particular focus in equity capital market fundraising for AIM-listed, mid-cap and smaller quoted companies and their sponsors.
As your company grows, we support and value our ongoing relationship with you, offering ongoing strategic and practical advice. Our corporate advisory work covers all the day-to-day issues affecting quoted companies, including advising on AGM and annual report related matters. Our corporate governance team handles a broad range of governance and compliance issues and a broad range of equity and debt capital markets transactions.
