Corporate Finance & Capital Markets

Walder Wyss’s longstanding experience in financial transactions places us among the top law firms in Switzerland. We advise banks, other financial companies and borrowers on a wide variety of secured and unsecured credit facilities, ranging from simple bilateral loans to complex syndicated loans, structured financing, and consumer credit.

Walder Wyss also offers high-quality, targeted advisory services for virtually every kind of capital market transaction. Our services extend from traditional securities issues to a range of innovative structured products. Whether you are considering an initial public offering (IPO), a secondary or rights offering, a private investment in public enterprises (PIPE), precisely negotiated high-yield or mezzanine financing, a convertible bond issue, derivative instruments, a newly developed hybrid security or debt restructuring, we can meet the challenges of today’s complex financial market environment.

Thanks to their experience in representing national and international issuers, syndicate banks, and shareholders, our lawyers and tax practitioners have an excellent feel for the needs and interests of all participants in capital market transactions.

"Their client service and multijurisdictional work is excellent."
