Lead managers are independent financial institutions appointed by the company going public to manage the IPO. They are the main body responsible for IPO processing.

A company planning for IPO first appoints lead managers. Lead managers examine company documents including financial documents, documents relating to litigation like commercial disputes, patent disputes, disputes with collaborators, etc. and other materials, in connection with the finalization of the draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) for the IPO.
