Capital Markets

We understand that listing can be complex and time intensive. Our clients choose Druces because we make it as painless as possible so they can get on with running their businesses.

Following Druces’ merger with Ronaldsons, Druces’ Capital Markets practice was strengthened by the arrival of two leading Capital Markets Partners, Stephen Ronaldson and Dominic Traynor. Together, the team advises on transactions involving the London Stock Exchange’s Premium and Standard segments, AIM and NEX admissions, IPOs, reverse takeovers, fundraisings and bond and loan note issuances.

Druces is now recognised as one of the UK’s top 20 law firms for the number of AIM listed clients we advise and we are ranked second in the UK for Basic Materials Clients* (*August 2020, Aim Adviser Rankings).

Our Capital Markets Team includes partners who are non-executive directors themselves and so not only have excellent technical knowledge from years of experience, but also know first-hand what it’s like to go through the process.

Internationally, our partners have practical experience of working with companies listed on other markets around the world: we a have a great deal of experience across Australia, South East Asia, Africa and North America, regularly dual listing our clients on Nasdaq, JSE, TSX, TSX-V, ASX, TISE and EURONEXT.

We advise clients across all sectors and are particularly known for our work in the natural resources sector as well the healthcare, construction and retail sectors.
