Howard Kennedy has a significant AIM practice, regularly advising clients and nominated advisers/brokers, since the market's inception in 1995.

We advise on:

  • pre-IPO fundraisings
  • AIM flotations
  • dual listings
  • secondary fundraisings
  • reverse takeovers
  • acquisitions
  • disposals
  • tender offers
  • continuing post-admission regulatory requirements; and
  • all aspects of life on this public market.

The firm also advises entrepreneurs looking to exit via an AIM listing.

Listing a company can seem like a daunting task with many regulatory and business hurdles to overcome. The IPO process can be demanding for a business and its personnel, and our lawyers can help with project management, identifying issues in advance and avoiding pitfalls, containing costs and making the transition to the public markets as smooth as possible. A successful admission to AIM is a milestone for any business and we are involved from the early beginnings right through to its conclusion.

We can also, where required, introduce clients to active nominated advisers and brokers.

Our international practice means we have the experience to advise companies operating across the globe and we work across all sectors, such as betting and gaming, biotechnology, financial services, insurance, manufacturing and engineering, media and creative industries, technology, retail and hospitality, construction, natural resources, pharmaceuticals, real estate and support services.
