Limited vision results in limited understanding—we see what others don’t.

Mayer Brown’s Capital Markets practice consists of corporate lawyers who represent both issuers, as well as placement agents, underwriters and dealers in a wide variety of equity, equity-linked and debt offerings, in addition to 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 issuers and financial intermediaries in connection with issuances of fixed-income securities, including investment grade debt, leveraged capital, high yield debt, continuously offered products, structured products and hybrid capital. In addition, we have substantial experience in all aspects of equity capital transactions, including initial public offerings, offerings of American Depositary Receipts and Global Depository Receipts, private placements, mezzanine or “pre-IPO” private placements, PIPE transactions and other equity offerings. We have considerable industry-specific expertise advising on transactions in the life sciences, energy, financial services and financial institutions, fintech, insurance, REIT and business development company sectors.
