Our corporate practice provides legal services to public and private companies, professional partnerships, leading financial institutions, private equity and investment funds, investors, and emerging companies on a broad range of substantial, high-profile matters–from cross-border transactions, initial public offerings (IPOs), to tax planning, distressed acquisitions and creative “first of their kind” financings. Winston is one of the world’s leaders in dispute resolution and this experience can be paramount in counselling on some of the most critical issues faced by organisations, governments, and individuals on their transactions.
Davis Polk’s London team consists of UK and US qualified lawyers covering capital markets, M&A, finance and restructuring transactions. The corporate and finance teams are supported by our London tax, financial regulatory and antitrust lawyers.
