Fieldfisher continues to strengthen AIM presence
Fieldfisher is now the sixth largest legal adviser to companies listed on London's AIM market, having added seven new clients in the last quarter.
The client gains sent the firm five places up the AIM advisers league table – the biggest gain made by any law firm.
Fieldfisher currently advises 34 AIM companies in sectors including tech, healthcare, mining and energy, up from 27 companies in the first quarter of this year.
The firm continues to win business in a competitive market for legal advisers. Due to the depth and breadth of its corporate expertise, Fieldfisher has benefitted from its ability to handle the increasingly complex nature and demanding timelines of deals being pursued by AIM-listed companies.
Fieldfisher's Energy and Natural Resources corporate team recently advised the banks on a $575m acquisition of US assets by AIM-listed Diversified Gas & Oil, the largest ever acquisition by an oil and gas company on AIM.
Commenting on the latest league tables, Neil Matthews, head of Fieldfisher's equity capital markets team, said: "The pipeline of significant deals on AIM continues to strengthen and Fieldfisher's experience in this area means we are ideally placed to provide expertise to a range of ambitious clients.
"Energy has been a significant contributor to our recent AIM market success, but we are also performing strongly in other key areas of focus for the firm – including mining, life sciences, tech and financial services.
"It is encouraging to see that AIM continues to be the marketplace of choice for many high-growth firms, both domestic and international, to list and raise funds."
