Schjødt is acknowledged as one of the leading capital markets practices in Scandinavia and is consistently placed among the leading firms in Scandinavia in all major league tables and recognized rankings. Our capital markets team represents leading corporate finance houses, international and domestic issuers, banks, sponsors and investors on public and private offerings, transactional structuring, disclosure and corporate governance matters and corporate and securities regulatory issues within the capital markets sphere.
Over the years, we have advised underwriters and issuers on a large number of Norwegian, Swedish and international equity capital markets (ECM) transactions, including several initial public offerings (IPOs) on the Norwegian and Swedish Exchanges, as well as on many of the most complex capital markets transactions in the Scandinavian market. We also continue to be active both within the debt and equity linked markets, following on from a market position established through a vast number of appointments in the Norwegian high-yield bond market. Our strong foothold within the private equity community also brings along considerable work related to public M&A and take-privates.
Together with our Financial Services colleagues, we handle a substantial amount of regulatory work in the financial sector and enjoy a close relationship with some of the key sector organizations. Several of our partners and lawyers have invaluable experience from the regulatory side, including the Oslo Stock Exchange, the Norwegian and Swedish Financial Supervisory Authorities and other relevant industry bodies and associations.
