Thommessen is one of Norway's leading firms within the banking and finance sector, with expertise in all types of financing transactions. In recent years, we have acted on some of the largest and most complex financings in Norway. Our lawyers advise clients from start to finish of a financing transaction, and frequently act on cross-border financing transactions.
The negative trends and difficult credit markets create a need for the financial institutions to following up loss-exposed commitments. Thommessen also has extensive experience of advising banks, groups of creditors and borrowers on comprehensive restructurings, troubled businesses and projects ("work-outs") and negotiating creditor agreements etc.
The firm's lawyers also have extensive litigation experience from court and arbitration proceedings.
