Capital Markets

With over 450 lawyers worldwide, we have one of the largest and most international teams of capital markets lawyers of any global law firm.

Our capital markets practice covers the full range of capital markets products and incorporates specialists in debt and equity capital markets, derivatives and structured finance, securitisation, corporate trust and agency and high yield.

Few practices can match our award-winning, top tier position across the full range of capital market products. With such a deep bench of specialists and global reach, international and industry-leading ‘first-of-a-kind’ transactions are our hallmark. We have been instrumental in nearly all the major developments in the capital markets, starting with the first ever eurobond issue in the 1960s.

Integrated into our capital markets practice is a group of U.S. corporate finance lawyers who specialise in U.S. securities law advice, enabling us to advise on U.S. law aspects of transactions anywhere in the world. In addition, a number of our lawyers play leading roles in our cross-practice Islamic Finance group.

The past few years have been the most challenging in the history of international financial markets and have required fresh thinking as the markets adjust to the continually changing economic, political and regulatory conditions. Renowned for our intellectual rigour, our capital markets lawyers draw on deep product expertise and regularly work alongside our regulatory, banking and finance, litigation, restructuring and other specialist teams to develop innovative solutions for our clients, often incorporating precedent-setting financing techniques that lead the industry.

That is why over 800 corporate and financial institution participants in the financial markets entrust us with the full range of their domestic and cross-border transactions.
