Equity Capital Markets
We de-mystify the corporate finance process, helping companies achieve their commercial goals, while ensuring a smooth transition from private ownership to full public status. Once public, we work closely both with companies planning to raise further capital and with investment banks and other corporate finance advisers leading those projects.
A leading and well-established advisor to the 'mid-cap' market, Osborne Clarke's corporate finance and capital markets work regularly covers IPOs (including on the Official List of the UK Listing Authority, AiM and dual listings on international stock markets); secondary issues (including rights issues, open offers, placings and capitalisations); and capital re-organisations.
We act for many investment banks, brokers, underwriters and financial advisers, as well as businesses ranging from the largest public companies and multi-nationals, to family-owned businesses across a broad range of sectors but particularly technology, communications, media, retail, leisure, natural resources and construction.
Our involvement in these industries gives us not only truly specialist knowledge but also in-depth market intelligence. This enables us to enhance significantly the value of advice given to our clients in these areas – whether institutional or corporate.
