Mergers and Acquisitions
Wiersholm is one of the leading Nordic firms in the area of mergers and acquisitions. We have played a leading role in very many of the largest transactions in Norway in recent years. Wiersholm’s work with mergers and acquisitions is always carried out by a team that covers all the legal areas that are key to the individual transaction. Areas of great importance, apart from central company law and contract law, include tax law, competition law and employment law, and Wiersholm has market-leading expertise in these areas as well.
Each individual team always has a clearly defined leader and deputy. This ensures that our work is coordinated effectively, and it makes it possible for our clients to have a single point of contact in our firm if they so desire.
Wiersholm and many of the firm's partners regularly receive top rankings for mergers and acquisitions.
In its annual survey of lawyers, Finansavisen ranked Wiersholm as the leading law firm in Norway in the area of “Stock Exchange and Securities Law”, which includes mergers and acquisitions, again in 2009. In two out of three subcategories, including mergers and acquisitions, a Wiersholm lawyer was ranked as number one.
