Ed Westhead, Director, Corporate
I am a director in Fieldfisher’s equity capital markets team and advise on a broad range of corporate finance transactions, including flotations, public company takeovers and secondary fundraisings on both AIM and the Main Market, together with other general corporate law advice. I act for a wide range of listed companies, brokers and nominated advisers and have a particular focus on the biotech, life sciences and natural resources sectors. Recent notable transactions that I have worked on include the IPOs of Horizon Discovery plc and Midatech Pharma plc (acting for Panmure Gordon), the IPO of Ergomed plc (acting for Oriel Securities) and the secondary fundraisings of Venture Life Group plc (acting for both Panmure Gordon and UK Bond Network) and Cambridge Cognition (acting for finnCap). I also acted for EVR Holdings and Kemin Resources on their reverse takeovers and the corporate reorganisation and employee ownership scheme of Circle Holdings plc, the private medical partnership.
