Plesner is one of the clear market leaders in Denmark in capital markets. By participating in countless Danish and international capital market transactions, we have developed unique expertise in capital markets law.
We are among the few preferred advisers on capital markets transactions (equity capital markets as well as debt capital markets) and legal matters relating to companies and securities listed or issued on Nasdaq Copenhagen or on other Danish and international markets. We advise Danish businesses on listings and issues on foreign regulated markets, including NASDAQ New York, the New York Stock Exchange, the London Stock Exchange, the Luxembourg Stock Exchange, Nasdaq Stockholm and First North Stockholm.
We draw on our vast experience gained through collaboration with leading capital markets firms in London and New York. In addition, most of our capital markets partners have degrees and/or overseas work background, securing them direct experience of international capital markets environments.
Our team offers coherent advice focused on business insight. We adapt our advice to the ever-changing market standards and attach great importance to ensuring active partner involvement throughout all stages.
In instances where a company is pursuing an IPO track alongside an M&A sale track ("dual-track" process), we successfully assign a partner team with in-depth capital markets and M&A experience to make sure that the precondition for providing highly specialised advisory services at short notice is constantly met. This approach has been instrumental in creating maximum value for our clients in dual-track cases.
