Capital Markets

Conyers Dill & Pearman’s capital markets lawyers are at the forefront of advising some of the world’s most recognised companies and institutions on their equity and debt capital raisings. They advise as to the laws of Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands and Mauritius from offices in those jurisdictions and those connected to the world’s financial centres and stock exchanges.

IPOs / OTHER EQUITY OFFERINGS

Conyers is the market leader in relation to initial public offerings, as demonstrated by annual league table rankings. In this regard, we frequently outrank our competitors and are, in many cases, the only offshore firm ranked in the top positions.

Our practitioners advise FTSE 100 and Fortune 100 public companies on their equity-raising transactions on NYSE, Nasdaq, LSE, HKSE, CSX, AIM, as well as many other international stock exchanges and can bring to bear in-depth experience at every stage of the corporate process.

CORPORATE BONDS / HIGH YIELD NOTE OFFERINGS / OTHER DEBT OFFERINGS

Conyers acts as offshore legal advisor to numerous listed/unlisted Bermuda, BVI, Cayman and Mauritius companies engaged in raising debt capital. We advise clients in connection with all types of debt raising transactions, including bond or high yield note offerings, and our lawyers offer a wealth of experience with all such debt raising transactions and are widely recognised in this space.
