Banking and Financing

Our team members are consistently recognised as leading lawyers within banking and financing. The team is highly regarded for their broad experience and legal competence, as well as ability to run projects. We always work in teams, to ensure that our client receives advice tailored to the specific matter.

Thommessen assists in complex financings, ranging from acquisition financings, bond loans, project financings, derivative transactions and other structured products, debt programmes (EMTN, etc.) direct lending, leasing, and larger insolvency and restructuring matters. Our broad experience has given us insight into various forms of financings and structures.

The financing market consists of a number of different players. We assist domestic and international banks, financial institutions, funds, arrangers, borrowers, as well as ECAs, with structuring, negotiating, and completion of local and cross-border financing transactions.

Expert advice must be based on extensive experience within capital markets, bank and bond financing, and in-depth knowledge of restructuring and insolvency. Our international experience and network stands out among other Norwegian law firms. This keeps us constantly updated on trends and market standards in the financing market. In a market which consists of numerous sources of capital and complex structures, our clients benefit from this knowledge. We assist with discussing strategic opportunities, managing risks and completing financing transactions, so that our clients succeed.

Thommessen is very good at combining the craft; the department is good technically and has a big team, but it is commercial as well. Client
