Cooper Grace Ward delivers high quality, focused and pragmatic advice in the investment and capital markets area. This has enabled us to build longstanding relationships with our commercial clients, industry associations and government associations.
Our team delivers integrated legal and financial solutions to clients ranging from small initial public offerings to multi-million dollar debt and equity financings. We provide advice to start-up companies, high growth companies, listed companies, venture capitalists, stockbrokers, scheme promoters, responsible entities, fund managers, trustee companies and superannuation trustees.
Our key areas of expertise in the capital markets area include:
- compliance, corporate governance
- due diligence processes
- equity and debt raisings
- financial services licensing
- managed investment schemes
- mergers and acquisitions
- private equity transactions
- property syndicates and trusts
- restructuring arrangements
One of our strengths is the expertise we bring from working with other advisers such as brokers, underwriters, accountants and corporate advisers. As a result, we do not need to reinvent the wheel – we understand the important role these advisers play in the capital raising process and often bring our strong working relationships with such key advisers to a transaction.
The role of regulators is critical in capital market transactions. Our experience in dealing with the ASX and secondary markets adds value for you and your business, as we understand regulators’ procedures and how best to approach them on difficult issues.
Cooper Grace Ward’s corporate team has earned the firm a place on the Doyle’s Guide list of leading corporate law firms (encompassing mergers and acquisitions and capital markets) in each edition since 2010.
