EVOLVE OR PERISH: HOW FIRMS ADAPTED TO CHANGING MARKETS IN 2006 Law firms aren't traditionally the nimblest of organizations. Though innovative in how they solve problems, lawyers have always been rather reactive when it comes to market trends. Recently however, heads of capital markets are realizing the profit to be made by moving first. Whether the trend is Chinese companies listing in Hong Kong, synthetic CDOs in the US or hybrid debt in Europe, the past year has shown the benefits of spotting a trend early and adapting a firm's business model to take full advantage.

In this downloadable PDF, IFLR journalists look at what has been driving the equity capital markets, debt capital markets and structured finance in Europe, the Americas and Asia in 2006.
