Capital Markets

We are one of very few firms in Scotland with the capability to undertake capital markets corporate transactions across all sectors. Our capital markets team is noted in Chambers UK for its particular experience in this area. This expertise has been built up through years of acting for a large number of Scotland’s listed companies, including the likes of STV, Lees of Scotland and SeaEnergy.

Our capital markets practice is not just centred on Scotland – we act for a number of companies based, and with operations and assets, in other jurisdictions, such as Ireland and Western Africa.

We provide a City firm quality of service, advising our listed companies clients on their IPOs, secondary fundraisings, M&A, general corporate activity and governance and compliance. We also have an in-depth working knowledge of the Takeover Code, which is crucial when advising in this arena.

We have spent many years developing strong relationships with the broking and investment bank community in Scotland and London and have advised a number of them in respect of their clients’ activities.  Our clients often value our ability to effect introductions to this community.
