“It is with great pleasure that we welcome Solveig Fagerheim Bugge and Marius Holm Rynning to our partnership” says Managing Partner, Sverre Tyrhaug. Chairman of the board, Hans "Hasse" Cappelen Arnesen, agrees:

“Thommessen is the top Norwegian law firm according to Mergermarket's M&A league table ranking in terms of M&A deal volume. So far this year we have assisted in nearly 40 M&A transactions with a combined deal value of over 5 billion euros”.

“Both Solveig and Marius have played key roles in several major transactions these last years. Solveig is as a fully-fledged partner both within M&A and capital markets transactions. Marius will be a key partner within taxation matters related to transactions, including financing and restructuring” Hasse adds.

“We are pleased to once again admit partners who have been with the firm ever since they started their careers as Trainees and Associates at Thommessen's Oslo office” Sverre concludes.

Both Solveig and Marius will join our partner team with effect from 1 January 2017.
