Capital Markets

Our Cayman attorneys provide creative, efficient solutions that meet our clients' specific goals in capital markets. We have advised on the initial public offering by Cayman companies of securities on the Taiwan Stock Exchange, the KOSDAQ market of the Korea Exchange, the New York Stock Exchange, and on secondary offerings.

Our attorneys provide nuanced insight and strategic advice as to matters of Cayman Islands law on shareholder activism and the exercise of dissenting rights in relation to the merger take-private of Cayman companies listed on NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange.
 

  • Our Cayman attorneys have also advised issuers, arrangers, underwriters, lead managers, investment managers, trustees and agents in transactions involving a wide range of international debt offerings, including:
    • Medium-term note programs
    • High-yield bonds
    • Convertible and exchangeable bonds
    • Tender offers
    • Asset-backed, mortgage-backed and esoteric securitizations
    • Structured products (including collateralized loan obligations, collateralized debt obligations, and other credit- and equity-linked notes)
    • Sovereign debt offerings
    • Loan participation notes
    • Variable funding notes
