Equity capital markets ‚Äď mid-large cap

Within: Equity capital markets ‚Äď mid-large cap

Mayer Brown International LLP has seen a litany of cross-border instructions in the insurance, life sciences and tech sectors, though the team's geographical reach has of late been a larger generator of work than its sector specialisms. With a particularly strong foothold in the US and Canada, an active Asia-Pacific network, and a partner with extensive experience in the Spanish market (Robert Flanigan), the ECM team has managed to stay busy despite a relative slowdown in certain markets worldwide. Also recommended are Kate Ball-Dodd, who has 'an amazing grip on the technical aspects of law and their practical application', and Rebecca Bothamley, 'a junior partner who can run a transaction like a senior partner'.

Mayer Brown International LLP's corporate practice handles M&A transactions across a broad array of sectors, including financial services, energy and natural resources, media, manufacturing and healthcare, with a particular leaning towards real-estate transactions. In addition to public and private companies, the firm frequently acts for financial sponsors on transaction structuring, asset sale and purchases and joint ventures. In addition, the team is experienced in working with senior management, boards of directors and committees on all aspects of mergers and acquisitions. The multi-jurisdictional aspect of the practice's work is facilitated through a strong network of international offices, with colleagues from the US, Germany, France and Hong Kong all regularly collaborating on deals. Perry Yam co-heads the global corporate practice from London, while Kate Ball-Dodd leads the London corporate practice. The firm boosted its ranks with the hire of senior counsel Jeremy Hill from Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, who is highly experienced in insurance and financial institutions transactions.
