We have extensive experience in advising large financial institution clients on a broad range of capital markets transactions, derivatives and financial instruments.
We advise clients in structuring and analyzing innovative tax-efficient financial products and transactions, including deductible hybrid securities, trust preferred securities, hedge fund and commodity-linked derivatives, convertible debt, contingent convertible debt instruments, structured notes, mandatory and optionally convertible instruments, domestic and cross-border notional principal contracts (such as swaps, caps and floors), collars, options, futures and forward contracts, securities lending, repurchase contracts and other hedging transactions, including with respect to foreign currencies, and credit derivatives.
We also advise clients on debt and equity shelf registrations, the original issue discount rules, variable rate debt instrument and contingent debt rules, debt reopenings, debt exchanges and recapitalizations, foreign targeted securities offerings, withholding tax implications, and compliance with reporting rules.
We are at the cutting edge. IFLR1000 US notes that it is in the “…structured finance space that the firm’s innovative role comes across most markedly.”
