Overview

Chapman and Cutler LLP has been called a leader in the areas of public and private finance. The firm's Corporate Finance Department has engaged in a diverse global finance practice for more than 70 years. Attorneys in the firm's Cross-Border Institutional Private Placement Group have served as special counsel to institutional investors (including virtually all of the large and medium-sized U.S. and Canadian insurance companies), pension funds, commercial banks, investment banks and other financial institutions and the sponsors of financial products, such as mutual funds and investment trusts. In a representative year more than $12 billion (U.S.) in securities are issued in transactions in which the Corporate Finance Department participates. Our cross-border institutional private placement transactions involve issuers and guarantors domiciled in numerous foreign jurisdictions. These nations include, but are not limited to, England, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Sweden, Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Malta, Greece, Hong Kong, Japan, Luxembourg and Mexico. The Corporate Finance Group's practice also includes representation of foreign corporations entering the U.S. private placement market as issuers of securities. The group acted as special issuer's counsel to the first Irish, German and Finnish corporations to close U.S. private placements, and to one of the largest corporations in Norway, as well as many corporations listed on the Financial Times FT-SE 100 Index.
