Corporate and M&A
Mergers and acquisitions are essential drivers for a healthy and competitive business environment. The buyer gets access to new expertise, technology and markets, while the seller can reinvest and focus on core business. Successful transactions make way for synergies and economies of scale, growth and increased profitability.
Our Corporate and M&A team has the competence, resources, experience and drive to deliver first class, effective and commercially-oriented assistance. We handle deals from simple one-to-one private transactions to the large, cross-border, transformational corporate transactions and complex public takeovers. Our teams are tailor made for the deal with respect to size, complexity and in-depth sector knowledge, and we ensure that all relevant areas of law are covered. We offer class leading and efficient support at all stages, from the initial project review, to strategy, structuring, drafting and negotiations and all the way through to the post-acquisition implementation.
Our team assists industrial players, private equity funds, issuers and owners and we have a number of investment banks and publicly listed enterprises among our clients. We advise on acquisitions, mergers, demergers, corporate restructurings, share issues and IPOs, public takeovers and bids, as well as regulatory and compliance matters, and we have considerable expertise in stock exchange, securities, company and commercial law. Our team has reported an increasing order volume and presence in the Norwegian transaction market in recent years, especially in the firm’s key sectors Communications, IT and Media, Aviation, Oil and Gas, and Shipping. This is reflected in higher rankings and visibility according to recognized ranking bureaus such as Legal 500, Chambers and MergerMarket.
