Our lawyers assist both industrial and financial clients in relation to acquisitions, mergers, transfers of undertakings and other transactions on a regular basis. We assist all types of businesses, listed companies, private equity firms and venture funds.
We are one of the largest advisors in Norway in this segment. Based on the number of transactions reported to the rating agency Merger Market, we were thus ranked number 7 in 2014 by virtue of having acted as legal advisor in 19 transactions, as well as number 8 as measured by transaction size, which amounted to about NOK 10 billion.
Our M&A team assists with all transaction stages, from strategic advice in the introductory phases until signing and implementation. We put together a team on the basis of the complexity and scope of a transaction, and handle anything from traditional acquisitions to the largest and most complex transactions.
Our lawyers have extensive experience in advising on company law matters. We are used to working with all company and partnership structures available under Norwegian law, and advise on equity transactions, including mergers/de-mergers and share capital changes, on a regular basis.
There are also international dimensions to company law, and we count a number of international groups among our long-term clients. This has left us well placed to address the particular issues arising in relation to foreign subsidiaries or parent companies.
