He has particular experience in equity capital markets and has advised issuers on capital increases, initial public offerings, new listings, dual listings and cross-border issues related to foreign listings, international issuance programs, ongoing disclosure and other securities laws issues.

 

Lukas Roesler is a capital markets and finance expert with more than 15 years of professional experience in this field and in-depth industry experience from his previous positions in corporate and investment banking at a major Swiss bank. He joined the firm’s partnership in 2019 and specializes in advising issuers, borrowers, investors and lenders on all aspects of capital markets and financing transactions.

 

Prof. Dr. Rolf Watter, who laid foundation to the firm's capital markets practice and is the firm's Senior Head M&A, commented: "I am delighted that Ralph Malacrida, Urs Kägi and Lukas Roesler, who all have an excellent track record, are taking over the helm of our Capital Markets Practice that has always been a key competence of Bär & Karrer."
