David Boles

I represent issuers, investors and investment banks on cross-border equity capital markets transactions. Based in London, I help European companies access the capital markets and in the past three years have advised on more than 30 IPOs and other capital raisings. I have worked on IPOs and listings on most European exchanges and has significant experience advising on US-registered offerings by European issuers. I also advise listed companies on US securities law matters and corporate governance. I am consistently named as a leading individual for equity capital markets work by publications in the UK, including IFLR1000 and Legal 500.

Why Cooley?

At Cooley we believe deeply that collaboration and teamwork are critical to delivering excellent work product and client service. And working as a team is much more fun. The Cooley culture is truly unique, and I feel lucky to work in such a supportive and innovative place. 

Some of the clients with whom I work

I have worked with many amazing and innovative companies – like Com Hem, Headhunter.ru, Medacta, Munters, Resurs, Siemens Healthineers, trivago and Vakuum Apparate Technik – and the investment banks that help them raise capital.
