Our capital markets practice covers the full spectrum of domestic and cross-border securities markets products, specializing in equity, debt and hybrid listings. Ranked consistently in the top tier by Chambers, IFLR and Legal500, our lawyers draw on deep product expertise and legal acumen and routinely work with specialist regulatory, restructuring, banking and finance and litigation teams to deliver innovative funding solutions. Acting on sophisticated and innovative transactions has grown to be our hallmark.
Over the last decade, we have advised on the largest Indian IPO (Coal India), the first Indian business trust listing in Singapore (Ascendas), India’s first sovereign blue-chip equity ETF (CPSE ETF), the first Indian public offering priced French-auction style (NTPC) and the first offer for sale transaction by the government of its shares to the public on Indian stock exchanges (ONGC).
Our team led by 4 Partners and 20 lawyers assist clients with planning and preparation for an offering, counsel them on structuring and product choice (through volatile market or regulatory conditions) and tailor their services to provide support at all stages.
We act primarily on Indian and overseas IPOs, follow-on offerings such as QIPs and rights offers, convertibles and exchangables such as ADRs, GDRs, FCCBs, hybrids such as REITs, InVITs and business trust listings, and screen-based block and bulk deals.
