Within: Equity capital markets – mid-large cap

The London ECM group at Linklaters LLP quarterbacks many of the firm's high-profile cross-border equity highlights, working in conjunction with colleagues across its extensive North and South American, European and East Asian office network. Clients have noted in particular the team's deep bench and strong pedigree of ECM specialists. At the senior end sits John Lane ('a doyen of UK corporate finance') and Jason Manketo ('one of the best US securities lawyers in London'), while on the more junior end of the partnership James Wootton 'has already developed a strong name for himself', and newly promoted partner Tom Thorne is 'continuing the line of top-class capital markets partners'. In addition to the team's work on foreign exchanges, the firm's peers have also noted its strong reputation in significant London Stock Exchange listings.
