Overview

Mayer Brown’s Capital Markets practice consists of corporate lawyers who represent both issuers and underwriters in a wide variety of debt and equity offerings, as well as an experienced structured finance practice working at the forefront of the market for securitized products.

With lawyers located in the principal financial centers in the Americas, Asia, and Europe, we regularly represent both issuers and underwriters in connection with issuances of fixed-income securities, including investment-grade debt, leveraged capital, high-yield debt, continuously offered products, equity-linked note programs and hybrid capital. In addition, we have substantial experience in all aspects of equity capital transactions, including initial public offerings, follow-on offerings, American Depositary Receipts and Global Depository Receipts, private investment in public equities and spin-offs.

Mayer Brown also has one of the largest structured finance practices in the world–and with that size comes the knowledge, experience and manpower to tackle transactions of any scale in almost any jurisdiction. We are a recognized leader in the execution of asset-backed securities and mortgage-backed securities, as well as asset-backed commercial paper, IP and whole business securitization, global ABS, collateralized debt obligations and structured derivatives.

Utilizing our knowledge, experience and global platform, we are focused on the business objectives of our clients, managing the risks inherent in financing transactions and utilizing resources efficiently to help clients achieve their goals. As a result of the diverse nature of our clients, our representation of issuers, underwriters and other market participants, and our global presence, our group has a thorough understanding of the business and legal issues that arise in complex financing transactions and the ability to create solutions that meet the needs of all parties.
