Equity capital markets

​Orrick’s Italian lawyers have significant experience in the equity capital markets, in particular with respect to:

  • IPOs aimed at listing in regulated markets
  • capital increases of listed companies through public offering of the relevant newly issued shares
  • takeover bids, also when launched for the purpose of target’s delisting.

Our advice includes, inter alia, vetting the relevant contractual and corporate documentation, liaising with the competent authorities and handling compliance issues.

In particular, Orrick’s Italian lawyers provide for a set of corporate compliance services aimed at supporting listed companies with legal matters such as disclosure obligations both to the market and the supervising authorities.

Therefore, Orrick’s clients can rely on:

  • high-level, tailor-made and prompt advice on the applicable regulatory framework, as well as on the basis of the relevant interpretation provided by the supervising authorities
  • accurate analysis and check with regard to clients’ internal procedures relating to the discharge of disclosure duties vis-à-vis the market and the supervising authorities. In particular, assistance is delivered in respect of corporate information, internal dealing, corporate ownership and governance, shareholders’ agreements, market manipulation and takeover bids launched on listed companies.
