Capital Markets

Simmons & Simmons offers world class coverage of all aspects of international capital markets work, from debt capital markets to our leading derivatives, structured products and securitisation practices.

We act for financial institutions and corporates through our network of offices in Europe, the Middle East and Asia and we are on the panels of nine of the largest global banks.

In a world of fast-moving regulatory change, we believe that it is critical to provide our clients with a joined-up service combining transactional experience with regulatory expertise.  Our capital markets team works closely with lawyers in our market-leading financial regulatory practices through which we have been involved in leading industry initiatives affecting the international capital markets.

We offer a service which has a reputation for being both partner-led, with significant partner involvement from initial structuring to execution, and cost-effective.

We are innovative, having worked on some of the most ground-breaking transactions in recent years, as well as developing a number of award-winning online legal resources and document automation tools. We also have a dedicated listings team which keeps in close contact with the principal European competent authorities.
