Corporate and Transactions/M&A

Transactions are often complex and require comprehensive solutions that often span across different legal areas. We assist clients both medium sized to large, Norwegian and foreign, within all industries and with all different aspects of a transaction, from the planning, the assistance related to Due Diligence processes, the contract negotiation and the implementation of the transaction itself.

In addition to corporate and contract law, tax, VAT, competition law and labour law are examples of legal areas that normally play a vital role in all transactions and where we at Brækhus offer market leading expertise.
