DQ presently acts as legal counsel for many internationally listed companies. We acted for the first Isle of Man company to be listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, the world’s leading mining and energy exchange.

The Isle of Man continues to be a leading jurisdiction for public listings around the world. Building on its reputation as the jurisdiction of choice for international companies listing on AIM, Isle of Man companies can also list on the main markets in London, Toronto, Hong Kong, Singapore and Frankfurt.

The flexible nature of the Isle of Man company structure, matched with zero percent local corporate taxes, zero stamp duty and the Isle of Man’s inclusion in the European Union VAT network, makes the Isle of Man the ideal jurisdiction for companies looking to go public.

The Isle of Man also boasts a number of international banks, local offices of each of the ‘big four’ accountancy and audit firms and a network of highly experienced non-executive directors. By utilising what the Isle of Man has to offer, international companies can take full advantage of access to the European and international capital markets without the tax and legal disadvantages of having to establish English or other local companies.

In DQ, we also have experience in acting for NOMADs, sponsors, brokers, advisors and underwriters on capital raising, as well as mergers and acquisitions and in respect of listed entities.
