Our Securities and Capital Markets practice covers all aspects of the capital formation process. We advise clients in all varieties of public and private financings, including initial public offerings, registered and unregistered securities transactions and issuance of investment grade and high yield debt. Our clients include some of the world’s largest financial institutions, which retain our lawyers because of their substantial experience in the most complex securities transactions that require highly creative and sophisticated advice.
Our experience extends to all types and combinations of debt and equity instruments and encompasses financings of all sizes by US and foreign companies in markets worldwide. In a capital markets environment characterized by rapid change and innovation, our lawyers structure new securities and transactions for clients in response to specific needs. Our experience with the Securities and Exchange Commission provides clear insight into regulatory considerations in offerings of all types.
In addition to providing a full range of capital markets advice and services, our lawyers assist clients in all matters arising under US federal and state securities laws. We have navigated the complex securities regulatory regime since the passage of the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. We remain abreast of all developments in this rapidly changing regulatory landscape.
Our Securities and Capital Markets practice is international in scope. Our US practice based in New York and Los Angeles represents issuers and underwriters in the full range of securities offerings. Our Paris office focuses on European transactions and our Pacific Basin lawyers handle Asian transactions. Also, through our New York and Miami offices, we advise many Latin American companies and banks in connection with their US securities offerings and securities exchange listings. Our lawyers have been active in Latin America for decades, notably on debt issues and the registration of American Depositary Receipt programs.
