Capital Markets / Financings
We advise companies and investors on national and international financings, with particular focus on acquisition financing. This includes advice on all aspects of syndicated loans, and, in particular, applicable LMA standards.
We have extensive experience in refinancing and restructuring existing loans and in structuring equity and debt capital. We have advised parties involved in some of the most prominent and complex restructurings of the last few years, including Apollo, TowerBrook and York in connection with the debt-for-equity swap in the Monier Group, and the management of the Stabilus Group in connection with the takeover of that company by the financial investor Triton.
We also advise investors and companies on public tender offers, IPOs, exits from private equity investments, and capital increases, including share placement. For example, we advised Investcorp on the takeover of the listed company Utimaco Safeware AG, and TOM TAILOR in connection with its IPO.
Our advice includes drafting employee stock option plans and ongoing advice regarding compliance with ad-hoc disclosure obligations, insider trading rules, and other obligations and requirements pertaining to a listed company.
We combine the highest level of quality with a practically oriented and creative approach and, where necessary, we collaborate closely with a network of respected foreign law firms.
