Capital Markets

We have a deep knowledge of capital markets transactions including public offers of securities, stock exchange listing requirements and governance arrangements, financial markets law compliance, strategic input on dealings with regulators, and public takeovers and schemes of arrangement. This experience extends across both equity and debt capital markets.

Members of the team have advised issuers, lead managers / underwriters and corporate trustees on a variety of debt and share market offers, including IPOs and complex security offering transactions.

We regularly advise overseas offerors on the extension of their offers, particularly into the New Zealand market, whether in reliance on mutual securities law recognition regimes or other limited disclosure regimes applying under New Zealand law.

We also frequently advise on complications that arise for offers of securities, including on Australian and New Zealand regulatory compliance matters and Australian class actions involving the offer of securities.
