The IFLR European Capital Markets Forum, taking place on April 28-29 in London, will now feature three panels analysing trends in the equity markets.

Two more panels have been confirmed in the past week. The first on equity advisers, will feature David Jennison of STJ Advisors alongside speakers from Ondra Partners and Moelis, and pitch them against the audience of banks and their lawyers. The second, led by Peter Castellon at Citi, will look at international selling restrictions in equity.

This is in addition to the existing keynote from Alasdair Warren, head of equity, EMEA at Goldman Sachs, on the markets in 2010. And a panel on ‘The next generation of IPOs’ featuring Mark Bicknell of Merrill Lynch, Stephen Whitbread of Morgan Stanley and Graham Kent of Deutsche Bank.

That line-up of top in-house equity lawyers will be led by Charles Howarth of Herbert Smith – one of the Forum’s sponsors.

Other highlights include a debate on the future of banking, featuring general counsels Simon Dodds of Deutsche and Brad Gans of Citi, alongside Goldman’s general counsel in investment banking, Laura Holleman, and Lorraine Charlton of newly formed AFME.

Look out for lively panels on Basel III, hybrid structures and restructuring high-yield, as well as discussions of Prospectus Directive and Mifid reforms.

The early bird for registration ends next Friday, so have a look at the agenda now – at
