Capital Markets

Hannes Snellman has a strong capital markets practice. We advise issuers, financial advisers and other market participants in connection with IPOs; public tender offers; share issues; securities offerings; private placements; debt instruments; share buy-backs; and regulatory matters.

Our capital markets practice has gained recognition working as lead counsel in numerous international transactions, drawing on the experience and qualifications of some of our partners who have practised in London and New York. This allows us to amalgamate local requirements with international standards. With an emphasis on a multi-disciplinary approach our capital markets team work closely together with tax, competition and sector experts.
