The team works so well together and is incredibly responsive and efficient. - Chambers USA, 2019
Our leading Capital Markets Practice Group represents issuers and private equity sponsors as well as underwriters in a wide variety of securities offerings across every major industry, including:
- IPOs and follow-on and secondary offerings
- High-yield, convertible and investment grade debt offerings
- Eurobond offerings
- PIPE and other private financings
Named a “Law Firm of the Year for Finance (including Capital Markets)” by Chambers USA in 2018, we are regularly rated among the top law firms for number and value for the issuance of debt and equity securities.
Given Kirkland’s large volume of corporate transactions, we are seasoned in a number of disciplines that often need to be marshaled in complex financings, including corporate governance, debt finance, investment funds, real estate, tax, securities litigation, environmental, intellectual property and ERISA. The Firm’s emphasis on teamwork makes it easy to apply these different areas of experience for the benefit of our clients.
To provide the highest quality, cost-effective representation, the Kirkland lawyers with the most experience and knowledge assume prominent roles in the offerings we lead. Our extensive experience enables us to focus on relevant issues while being sensitive to the timing and staffing constraints that clients often face, and to build strong long-term relationships with issuers and their management teams.
