In a volatile global market, matching business needs with available resources can be challenging, as the transactions, as well as the corresponding financial instruments, become more intricate. Investors are growing more cautious as they increase the competition for available capital. Regulators and stakeholders worldwide demand more transparency and accountability. Through the combined efforts of our Global Securities Practice Group and our local Corporate Mergers and Acquisitions and Banking & Finance securities practitioners, our Kyiv office is able to take the lead in coordinating all aspects of the legal work in a securities offering, including matters relating to local law. Our size and structure make us particularly adept in dealing with multi-jurisdictional, multi-language due diligence exercises; in restructuring local companies to comply with international requirements; in interfacing with local regulators and stock exchanges; and in coordinating, where appropriate, with the UK Listing Authority, the US Securities and Exchange Commission, the London Stock Exchange, the New York Stock Exchange, the Warsaw Stock Exchange, and stock exchanges in other countries of Europe.
Helping clients navigate the complexities, raise funds, and increase shareholder value is the goal of our Securities Practice Group in Kyiv. Our practitioners work collaboratively to help manage the legal and business issues throughout the lifecycle of every transaction.
