Capital Markets

As investors return to the capital markets, they must consider increasingly innovative and complex financing solutions. They require greater covenant protection and new levels of transparency and disclosure.

Lawyers and capital markets participants must be smarter and more efficient than ever–constantly adapting to market changes, interpreting the many layers of regulations and understanding what investors are looking for in an evolving environment.

Clients choose us for our ability to navigate every complexity of the evolving markets and products and to efficiently advise on any type of transaction. They rely on our history of giving groundbreaking capital markets advice in mature and growth markets and for our solid experience reaching across all the G20 countries.

Our teams lead on every transaction, backed by the support of the Firm's truly international partnership. When needed, we act fast and deliver results. If a simple solution is not enough, we dig deep. We think ahead and analyze businesses and the industries in which they operate to identify the issues before they become problems.

Our advice covers the whole financing life cycle and draws on experience from our banking, capital markets, financial restructuring and insolvency, regulatory and dispute lawyers, including:

  • all forms of capital-raising
  • intricate, cross-border financing
  • strategies for acquisitions, reorganization restructurings
  • regulatory matters in key markets throughout the world
  • all forms of structured financing and innovative funding solutions
  • fund formation

We have unrivalled experience in advising international and local clients, issuers, stakeholders and financial institutions in groundbreaking and complex transactions in the constantly developing Turkish capital markets. Our global presence provides clients with a capital markets team that has the knowledge, infrastructure, and technical capability to effectively tackle the challenges of cross border transactions.

Our extensive experience includes advising issuers and underwriters in more than 50 international equity and debt securities offerings including Türk Telekom, Vakıfbank and Emlak Konut REIC public offerings which are among the largest equity offerings in Turkish history. We also keep a unique track record of representing foreign issuers in the recent sales of equity and debt securities to investors in Turkey, most of which are "firsts of their kind", having represented Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, DO & CO Restaurants & Catering AG, Goldman Sachs International and VTB Capital plc since 2010. We are also currently working on the first-ever convertible bond issuance in Turkey.
