We provide strategic and legal advice to businesses within manufacturing, retailing and finance. The core expertise of the department is general company law, relating to ongoing operations, structuring, acquisition/divestment of both companies and assets, as well as other transactions.
We have extensive transaction experience. We advise all types of businesses, including listed companies, private equity firms and venture funds. We also have long-term client relations with banks and brokers.
We are a specialised professional resource, and work in tandem with our Energy, Property & Construction and Public Sector departments. The department also has a litigation practice, with a particular focus on warranty matters relating to share purchase agreements, tax and IPR.
Our lawyers have extensive experience in advising on company law matters and corporate acts. We are used to working with all company and partnership structures available under Norwegian law. 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. We can advise prior to incorporation, upon change of ownership, as well as to resolve any corporate disputes.
