Debt Capital Markets

We have a broad debt market practice and have advised on a large number of bond loans in Norway and internationally in recent years. Extensive experience and thorough market understanding have gained us a position as a leading advisor to issuers, arrangers/investment banks, bond investor representatives, as well as investors, in this market.

The Norwegian bond and note market is an important source of funding for both Norwegian and international companies. The market is well-established, well-functioning and offers businesses and projects access to competitive financing.

  • legal and strategic advice on choosing the source of funding and borrowing structure
  • drafting and negotiation of financing documentation (including relevant collateral, guarantees and inter-creditor agreements)
  • high-yield and investment-grade bond loans
  • combined bank and bond structures

Thommessen’s comprehensive industry and capital market expertise provides our clients with access to advice on all relevant business areas. Our clients greatly appreciate our expertise and describe the firm as a one-stop shop offering a complete and well-attuned range of services (Chambers Europe 2019).
