Research period review: 31st edition (2020/2021) 

Over the research period, the financial and corporate team worked on banking, capital markets, M&A and restructuring and insolvency matters. In the banking practice, the firm represented mostly borrowers in project, acquisition and corporate financing, as well as refinancings.

 

In terms of capital markets work, the practice worked on debt and equity matters, representing mostly issuers. On the debt side, the team completed investment grade bond issuances, while on the equity side, the team completed an IPO.

 

The M&A practice acted on both the buyer and seller side in acquisitions. It also worked on re-domiciliations.

 

In the restructuring and insolvency practice, the team worked largely on out of court restructurings, where it represented debtors.
