Equity Capital Markets

Thommessen has a leading position within equity capital markets transactions in Norway. We have over the last five years had a market share of more than 90% for IPOs on the Oslo Stock Exchange and Oslo Axess based on capital raised, and we have assisted key clients both in Norway and internationally with some of their most important transactions.

The equity capital markets have become an increasingly important source of funding and is essential for economic growth – both nationally and internationally. As the importance of the equity capital markets continues to grow, so does the focus on trust and confidence in these markets. This has resulted in stricter and more detailed regulation of the equity capital markets. Further, equity capital markets transactions have become increasingly complex, with ever more international components being added.

Thommessen has one of Norway’s largest and most experienced teams advising on IPOs, equity issues, public takeovers and regulatory issues. We have both the capacity and the experience to assist with the largest and most complex cases, whilst at the same time handling a large volume of medium-sized and small equity transactions on an ongoing basis. Our equity practice is ranked Tier 1 in all relevant international legal rankings.

The uniqueness is the ability to get a lot of complex legal requirements for going public as a company into understandable and practical deliverables. The project management is also of great importance when undertaking an IPO and Thommessen really has a strong project management ability. Client
