  • April 2017

Wakefield Quin represented VEON Ltd. in its dual listing on the Euronext exchange in Amsterdam and in relation to a $70 million offering of NASDAQ-listed ADRs and common shares of VEON by one of its leading shareholders.

Veon, headquartered in Amsterdam, is one of the world’s largest integrated telecommunications services operators providing voice and data services. VEON is a long-standing client of Wakefield Quin, having advised VEON (then “Vimpelcom”) on its original listing on the NYSE as well as on its subsequent move to NASDAQ in 2013.

The Wakefield Quin team was led by Ian Stone with the assistance of Jemima Fearnside, which worked alongside Latham & Watkins LLP (Washington office).
