Equity Capital Markets

Our equity capital markets work covers IPO's of Cayman Islands, Irish and British Virgin Islands companies on NASDAQ, NYSE, LSE, ISE, HKSE, CSX, TWSE, AIM and IEX, secondary issues (including rights issues, open offers and placings), depository issues and ongoing advice to issuers (including in the event of substantial acquisitions or takeovers).  We advise issuers, underwriters, sponsors, lead managers as well as selling shareholders.

Our Cayman and British Virgin Island teams, who work alongside international counsel and are based in our British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, DubaiHong Kong and London offices, have particular expertise in the natural resources and project finance sectors. 

Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands domiciled companies are often used in large-scale projects and investments across those sectors. To encourage further listings of natural resources companies in Hong Kong, the HKSE recently announced changes to its listing rules to accommodate natural resources companies (including minerals and petroleum) to apply for a primary or secondary listing on the HKSE.
