Equity capital markets

At Browne Jacobson, we appreciate the legal and practical implications of being a public company, as well as the complexities it brings. Our equity capital markets team has extensive experience of advising unquoted, AIM and main market public companies, shareholders, directors and financial advisors covering an expanse of legal work.

We’re known for our innovative approach. And work hard to combine this with market-leading expertise and the experience. In this way we’re able to support a public company through every possible stage of its life cycle, including pre-IPO fundraisings and structuring as well as all aspects of either AIM or main market IPOs.

We work collaboratively across our team to instruct on secondary fundraisings, continuing compliance, company administration, transactions, restructuring, debt financings and takeovers.

We thrive on helping companies and directors to understand the process as well as their continuing obligations and the reasons behind them.

We deliver dedicated assistance in market soundings and preparation of investor presentations, as well as assistance with drafting and verifying the admission document or prospectus.

We negotiate transaction documents expertly, placing or introduction agreements, adviser’s terms and comfort letters.

We help to put the infrastructure required in place, including appropriate corporate governance structures, dealing codes, relationship agreements, service contracts and employee incentives.

Most importantly, we turn a problem into a solution. We’ll stand by you every step of the way, with our unfaltering tailored support and guidance.
