Gowling WLG hits top of the main market IPO league table

Gowling WLG (UK) LLP, formerly Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co, advised on more main market IPOs than any other law firm in 2015.

In research conducted by and published in The Lawyer magazine, Gowling WLG (UK) was identified as having been involved in more main market IPOs than any other law firm last year.

Of the 55 main market IPOs last year Gowling WLG (UK) acted on 12 of them with its role split equally between mandates for the issuer and the investment bank/brokers involved.

Nick Heather, a partner in the equity capital markets group at Gowling WLG (UK) commented: “2015 was indeed a very busy year for us and we are particularly pleased that the mandates we attracted are divided equally between roles for the issuer and the banks involved.

In respect of mid-market IPOs I believe that we have a fairly compelling proposition in terms of technical expertise and experience and being able to guide clients through what is a time consuming and sometimes daunting process.”

Gowling WLG’s (UK) 60-strong corporate team has extensive experience across the whole spectrum of corporate advice, including equity capital markets on both the Official List and AIM, investment funds, private equity and both public and private mergers and acquisitions.
