Our capital markets experience encompasses a wide range of securities offerings, including IPOs, QIPs, FPOs, IPPs, rights offerings, offer for sale on the stock exchanges, debt offerings, ADR and GDR offerings and other overseas listings of Indian businesses.

The Capital Markets practice advises and provides comprehensive legal support on a variety of offerings in the domestic and international capital markets.

Our domestic offerings include initial public offerings, follow-on public offerings, rights issues and qualified institutional placements across a variety of sectors and industries.

On the global front, our offerings include advising on American Depository Receipts (ADRs), Global Depository Receipts (GDRs), Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds (FCCBs), Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and listings on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) of the London Stock Exchange.

We regularly represent issuers, domestic and international investment banks, underwriters and lead managers in such offerings.

This includes advising clients on issues and matters relating to listed securities and other transactions such as open offers, delisting offers, buyback offers (both open market and tender offers).

We have time and again demonstrated our capability in handling complex and simultaneous multi-jurisdictional offers and our expertise extends to handling and advising clients on matters requiring representation before the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and Securities Appellate Tribunal (SAT).

We also advise broking houses and security holders on block and bulk trades on the floor of the stock exchange.

In addition to advising on capital market offerings, our capital markets team also advices companies and market intermediaries on regulatory compliance and various corporate governance issues in relation to securities laws in India.
