Capital Markets

The capital market becomes an increasingly more attractive addition to conventional financing instruments in your financing mix – We handle your legal matters, so you can concentrate on what matters.

We advise national and international companies, as well as investment banks particularly on IPOs, rights issuance, listings (including secondary and dual listing), as well as reallocation of shares and changing of the stock exchange segment specially focused on the mid-cap segment. We also support you structuring and issuing your bonds.

Our services include:

  • Comprehensive preparations (we prepare you for the capital market and establish an adequate corporate governance structure, we choose the most appropriate variant of capital raising for your concerns, execute the legal due diligence, devise timetables and step plans, as well as handle the project management).
  • We conceptualise and draft your securities prospectuses. In doing so, we not only focus on minimum legal requirements but develop a prospectus also presenting your individual peculiarities, strengths and strategies ensuring that you are optimally recognized by the capital market players.
  • We assist in or conduct the approval procedure with the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority and handle the communication with stock exchanges, IPO advisors or third parties.
  • We prepare all legal documents required, like legal opinions, disclosure letters as well as underwriting agreements.

Furthermore we provide support and advice on all questions regarding capital market compliance, e.g. fulfillment of notification obligations or compliance with insider trading rules, the preparation and conduct of the general meeting, as well as on all securities trading law questions. We comprehensively advise your members of the management and supervisory boards on rights and responsibilities arising from their board membership as well as on questions of D&O insurances.
