Latham & Watkins’ Capital Markets Practice continues to lead the market, earning an exceptional slate of #1 league table rankings across various global, US, and EMEA product categories. In 2021, Latham advised issuers and underwriters on more than 1,070 debt and equity transactions, helping companies raise in excess of US$765 billion around the globe.

Ian Schuman, Global Chair of Latham’s Capital Markets Practice, said “Our capital markets practice has had an incredible year and through taking 150 companies public via IPO, direct listing or deSPAC globally, we have significantly bolstered our public company representation practice. Issuers have really gravitated to firms that can not only execute the IPO but also be all the things they’re going to be needing as a high-growth public company.”

This leadership across capital markets products reinforces Latham’s position as the go-to firm for issuers, private equity investors, and investment banks, for the most interesting and complex transactions.
