INVESTORS ARE INCREASINGLY DEMANDING AND SELECTIVE, AND THE LEGAL AND REGULATORY FRAMEWORK IS INCREASINGLY COMPLEX AND EXPANSIVE. TO RAISE FUNDS VIA THE CAPITAL MARKETS, COMPANIES NEED TO DEMONSTRATE GOOD ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE PRACTICES, IN ADDITION TO PLANNING AND CONTROL OF THE ENTIRE PROCESS OF A TRANSACTION. IT IS ESSENTIAL TO HAVE SPECIALIZED LEGAL ADVICE IN OPERATIONS OF HIGH COMPLEXITY, WITH A LONG HISTORY OF RELATIONSHIPS WITH REGULATORY AND SELF-REGULATORY AUTHORITIES AND WITH THE MAIN MARKET PARTICIPANTS.
