The wider team is made up of four practice areas: capital markets, securitisation / structured finance, derivatives and corporate trustee.
The DCM team advises sovereign, quasi-sovereign and corporate issuers, investment banks, dealers, and trustees on the entire spectrum of cross-border debt capital markets transactions (including Shariah-compliant structures) in a broad range of transactions under English, New York and Canadian law, including high-yield, investment grade and sovereign debt (in both public and private transactions and in both programme and stand-alone form), exchangeable and convertible bonds, commercial paper programmes, exchange offers, tender offer and consent solicitations, as well as debt restructurings. The team’s experience extends to debt issues under Canada’s Multijurisdictional Disclosure System (adopted by the US SEC and Canadian securities regulatory authorities) and debt offerings registered with the US SEC. The DCM team has a reputation for excellent client service, breadth and versatility and high competence. Its clients are across Europe, Asia and Africa – particularly in the emerging markets.
