-For years, Thommessen has been a leading firm within M&A and capital markets in Norway. In 2014 and 2015 we advised on all major IPO’s here in Norway. Measured in capital raised, Thommessen’s market share in the IPO market was 93% in 2014 and is 90.5% in 2015. This past year we have assisted our clients on 67 M&A transactions valued at a total of 12,226 MEUR. Christian has been a key advisor in many of these transactions and his experience and expertise will benefit both clients and colleagues, says Chairman of Thommessen, Hans Cappelen Arnesen.

Christian started his career at Thommessen in 2007. He has since then been advising on M&A and equity capital markets transactions, acting for private equity firms, investment banks, stock exchange listed companies and privately held companies.

Christian will join the partner team at Thommessen with effect from 1 January 2016.
