Complemented by a prolific tech practice and transatlantic and pan-European expertise, Latham & Watkins is consistently involved in some of the largest listings in London and throughout the European markets. 'Well-staffed and very collaborative', the London team was involved in the largest tech IPO on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) in 2018, and also handled 2018's largest European IPO in conjunction with the firm's Frankfurt office. The English law ECM practice is led by James Inness, who sits in the wider corporate group alongside the London private equity team – another important source of work for the capital markets group. Spearheaded by David Boles and Olof Clausson, the US securities group on the other hand sits alongside and shares a pool of associates with the high-yield team. Clausson has a particularly strong reputation in the Nordic markets and has developed expertise in the fintech and digital payments sectors.
