At a Glance Guide to NYSE and NASDAQ listings

Ogier's global equity capital markets team has significant experience in advising on the listings of both operating companies and special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) on NYSE and NASDAQ.

With record setting years in 2017 and 2018 for SPAC offerings in the United States, strong demand continued into 2019 alongside a healthy cross-border deal flow facilitating a stream of major IPO mandates. We anticipate that robust SPAC activity will continue into 2020.

With offices in the Caribbean, Channel Islands, London, Europe and Hong Kong, our international legal teams seamlessly bridge the US, Asian and European time zones.
