2016 was a slow year for Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), but 2017 holds more promise, especially with larger companies, like Airbnb and Spotify, expected to go public. In this episode of Thomson Reuters: Down the Hall with Practical Law, host Renee Karibi-Whyte discusses IPOs with Chris Roehrig, senior legal editor at Practical Law. In their discussion, they cover what IPOs are, their future market, and how lawyers are involved. Additionally they discuss dual class share structures and investors’ increasing interests in foreign stock markets.
Christopher Roehrig joined Practical Law from Torys LLP, where he was a senior associate in the corporate and capital markets practice groups.
