Leading Capital Markets Team


Burness Paull has listed company skills and depth of resources to deal with any size of public transaction.

We have built our reputation acting for many of Scotland's listed companies, including Standard Life Aberdeen, STV Group, Springfield Properties, Nucleus Financial Group, i3 Energy and Murgitroyd Group. Many of our clients have global reach including Savannah Petroleum and Bowleven, with operations and assets in jurisdictions including the USA and West Africa.

What our capital markets lawyers can offer you:

Our capital markets lawyers recognise the sensitivities and reputational and commercial importance of capital markets and public takeovers and for us, success is protecting your interests and achieving your goals.

We regularly advise clients on their IPOs, secondary fundraisings, M&A, general corporate activity and governance and compliance. An in-depth working knowledge of the Takeover Code goes with this.

The firm's market-leading company secretarial team advises listed PLCs, both main market and AIM, on their ongoing requirements and on company secretarial aspects of their corporate actions.

We also have a team of corporate governance experts with extensive recent in-house listed company experience, who are uniquely positioned to keep listed clients advised of developments in the ever-changing world of corporate governance that are applicable to them and how best to implement these changes.

Who do Burness Paull's capital markets lawyers work with?

The team's clients range from leading financial institutions, experienced in the capital markets, to those who are issuing shares for the first time.

We have spent many years developing strong relationships with the broking and investment bank community in Scotland and London and have advised a number of them in respect of their clients’ activities. Clients often value the ability of the firm's capital markets lawyers to effect introductions to this community.

The IPO / flotation process can be challenging and intensive, but ultimately hugely rewarding.

It’s a process that we make easier for you by sharing our resources, knowledge and experience. Get in touch to find out how we can help.
