Across several industries and global markets, issuers and investment banks alike look to Crefovi for unparalleled legal services in connection with initial public offerings.
Ensuring a successful transaction
Crefovi’s capital markets lawyers provide client-focused legal services across all aspects of initial public offerings (‟IPOs”).
For most companies and their owners, an IPO is a once-in-in-a-lifetime event that represents the culmination of many years of hard work. An IPO can provide a company’s shareholders and management with a significant sense of accomplishment and is often one of the most important milestones in the evolution of a company, for its owners, management, employees and other stakeholders.
The team’s deep knowledge and insight place Crefovi’s securities and capital markets lawyers among the most qualified and experienced in the industry. Our team works with colleagues in our global ‟Capital markets” practice and market-leading industry, regulatory and compliance practices to provide clients with an integrated service, no matter where they are in the world.
Adding value beyond initial public offerings
An IPO, however, will also frequently bring with it a sense of upheaval, as an IPO often requires significant changes to the way a company operates and conducts itself—membership in the “public” world brings with it legal and compliance obligations that need to be both understood and acted upon.
Therefore, newly public companies often continue to seek Crefovi’s services after the completion of an initial public offering, as the firm offers public company clients one of the most experienced and respected corporate and securities practice teams in the world. At Crefovi, clients find teams that expertly and routinely handle the entire array of issues affecting public companies, particularly in areas such as corporate and securities laws, tax matters, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, litigation, antitrust and competition law and employee benefits.
A global network
Clients praise Crefovi’s lawyers for their responsiveness & ability to understand the technical, business and legal aspects of each IPO transaction and come back, matter after matter, to be advised by them.
While London and Paris based, we routinely work across borders. The vast majority of our engagements are multi-jurisdictional. We are used to working in multinational teams, and rely on our network of specialist lawyers for support in other jurisdictions.
The team has therefore established an extensive international network of capital markets contacts and a close association with other specialist lawyers worldwide. Our history of successes in high profile, politically sensitive matters reflects an ability to act swiftly and with the utmost discretion.
