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'.
