Are you curious about what corporate lawyers do when it comes to companies going for Initial Public Offering (IPO) and getting listed on stock exchanges?
Capital Markets & Securities Law is a complex practice area that involves advising companies and investors on various aspects of securities offerings and trading, including compliance with regulatory requirements and disclosure obligations.
The Indian Capital market has grown significantly in recent years, providing opportunities for lawyers to work on a wide range of transactions and advise clients on a variety of legal issues. It can be a challenging but rewarding field for legal professionals to build a career in.
Going public through an IPO is a significant milestone for a company and its investors. It allows the company to raise capital by selling shares to the public and enables investors to potentially see significant returns on their investments. However, the process of going public is complex and requires a great deal of planning and preparation.
Companies typically spend between one to two years preparing for an IPO, as it requires a significant amount of internal changes, financial and legal compliance, and documentation. The company needs to transform itself to meet the regulatory and compliance requirements of being a public company and also to attract investors. Additionally, the company may need to hire underwriters, legal and accounting firms, and other professional services to help navigate the process.
