Clifford Chance has advised on one of the largest IPOs in Continental Europe this year, tapping into a trend of tech companies pursuing public listings.
The magic circle firm won the mandate from Dutch fintech company Adyen, which hosts payment platforms for companies such as eBay, Uber and Netflix. Adyen turned to magic circle partner Hans Beerlage and counsel Han Teerink for advice on the deal. Both are based in Amsterdam.
They were supported by financial regulatory counsel Marian Scheele and US securities partner Alex Bafi, who was supported by counsel Olivier Plessis and associate Ryan Bosch in Paris.
Clifford Chance’s London and Luxembourg offices were also involved, with senior associate Patrick Meson and lawyer Lauren Harris joining the firm’s deal team.
Adyen will list on Amsterdam’s Euronext exchange and has been given a market capitalisation of €7.1bn.
Latham & Watkins is advising the underwriters on aspects of US law, while Stibbe is on hand for Dutch law matters. Latham’s team is led by City partner Olof Clausson, supported by associates Taylor Mullings and Mark Galeotti.
There have been a series of tech company IPOs in the last few months; Czech-based cyber security company Avast announced plans to list on the London Stock Exchange last month turning to White & Case for legal counsel. Latham again won the role for the banks, as well as Avast shareholder CVC.
Last year mobile phone app Snap debuted on the US stock market, with Cooley and Goodwin Procter winning the top legal roles.
