Capital markets

Our team of knowledgeable securities lawyers covers the full range of equity and debt capital markets matters, from domestic and international equity offerings and multiple listings for large multinationals, to investment grade and high-yield debt transactions for sovereigns, banks, export credit agencies, multilaterals, institutional investors and international companies, as well as securitization and derivatives.

Clients particularly highlight the team's ability to ‘find creative solutions even in case of strict regulatory requirements.’Chambers Europe, 2021
