Wiersholm’s work on stock exchange listings and share issues is always performed by a team that is designed to cover all the areas of law that are important to the individual transaction. Each individual team always has a clearly defined leader and deputy. This ensures that our work is coordinated effectively, and it makes it possible for our clients to have a single point of contact in our firm if they so desire.
