Freshfields wins ‘Capital Markets Team of the Year’ at the Financial News Legal Services Europe Awards

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP (‘Freshfields’) has won ‘Capital Markets Team of the Year’ at the Financial News Legal Services Awards Europe 2017. The awards, now in their fourth year, celebrate the achievements of law firms, teams and individual lawyers working in financial markets. 

The firm was honoured for its work advising ConvaTec, the global medical products group, on its £1.4bn initial public offering (‘IPO’) and listing on the London Stock Exchange. The IPO is one of the largest in the healthcare sector in the past two decades and valued the company at £4.4bn, resulting in ConvaTec becoming a FTSE 100 company shortly after the IPO.

Corporate partners Chris Mort and Doug Smith led the team for Freshfields.
