Real estate

Our commercial property practice provides the full range of legal services to clients in the Norwegian commercial property market. Our tailored and cost-effective teams do their utmost to meet our clients’ changing needs in response to new market trends, contract formats and changes in the law.

We are heavily involved in the transactions market and assist parties on a very considerable number of property transactions, large and small, each year. Property transactions involve a lot more than property law. Legal advisors also need in-depth knowledge of, for example, company law and shareholders’ agreements, tax, VAT, employment law, regulatory finance issues, debt financing and environmental law. Our lawyers cooperate seamlessly with the firm’s other specialists and show clients the most direct and secure route from bidding process to closing of the transaction.

Our interdisciplinary property development team assists developers on miscellaneous commercial, residential and holiday property development projects. The projects range from some of the largest and most complex development projects in Norway to small-scale projects.

Managing leases and ongoing operations are of key commercial importance to our clients, and we are at the forefront of adaptation to new lease formats and concepts. Funding of commercial property through equity transactions, bank loans and bond loans is a cornerstone of our practice, in relation to both transactions and long-term commercial property ownership.

I highly recommend Thommessen as a real estate law firm. Their expertise, experience, and dedication to the client’s needs make them a trustworthy partner for all types of property projects. Client
