Capital Markets

We have experience in advising on the full range of debt [and equity issues] as well as on derivatives and structured finance. Together with  Linklaters’ market-leading capital markets practice, we have advised on multiple capital market transactions in KSA, leveraging the global network of Linklaters’ offices.

A key strength of the combined Linklaters and Z&Co. collaboration is the ability to offer a global team that combines technical expertise with a wealth of experience, such as regular contact with listing authorities and regulators. As a Saudi law firm working with Linklaters, we have extensive experience in advising Saudi issuers, investors and financiers in the context of the Euromarkets, the U.S. capital markets, and Asia. We work closely with clients to meet their expectations of, and need for, a full securities law service and we are able to provide advice on complex and innovative issues that are at the forefront of the international capital markets practice.

The team has built a strong reputation for counselling leading companies, investors, and issuers throughout the KSA and around the globe on domestic and cross-border securities issues, as well as on the development of new and innovative financial instruments.
