The Hammonds Equity Capital Markets Team was involved in a number of high profile and challenging transactions in 2008, despite the general slow down in activity in the public markets in the UK and abroad.
In spite of difficult market conditions, 2008 was a good year for Hammonds' AIM practice, having advised on a total of 13 AIM transactions worth £753.1m in aggregate, including IPOs, fundraisings, takeovers and P2P transactions. In addition, we advised on some significant transactions involving Main Market companies.
In May 2008, international law firm Hammonds became a limited liability partnership. Hammonds LLP and its affiliated undertakings has offices in Birmingham, Leeds, London and Manchester in the UK, and in Berlin, Brussels, Beijing, Hong Kong, Madrid, Munich and Paris.
