What the team is known for

Maintains strong firm-wide expertise in emerging markets, US and European debt and equity offerings, and in regulatory concerns. Also advises sovereign states and their underwriters on high-profile capital markets transactions. Further recognised for its presence on equity transactions in the Nordic market and for advising Russian issuers on capital markets transactions.

Strengths

One client says: "The whole team works together very well, so we know if we reach out to one lawyer or associate and they are unavailable, then another colleague will step in."

Another describes the lawyers as "knowledgeable and enthusiastic," adding: "I really appreciate their ability to move swiftly and deliver high-quality drafting and advice within tight timescales."
