Finance and Insolvency

Brækhus’ team for Finance and Insolvency assists with all relevant matters within financing, restructuring, and the enforcement of monetary claims. We provide advice and assistance in relation to contract negotiations and disputes, with a specific focus on return of investment for our clients.

For companies experiencing financial challenges we assist with restructuring. Our lawyers are specialists in assessing opportunities available and strategies to save your organization and we work together with other lawyers with expertise in other fields.

Several of our lawyers have experience from some of Norway’s largest financial institutions and worked intensively with legal issues related to financing, collateral financial restructuring and loans in default. We assist with project financing, assessment of available credit facilities, financing of acquisitions, guarantees, etc.
