Corporate and Transactions (M&A)
Our corporate and transaction (M&A)-specialists advise clients ranging from small businesses to multinational corporations on all aspects of company law. We focus on the commercial needs of the client, with the goal of adding value.
Company law is key to the operations of all enterprises. Our lawyers have extensive experience of advising both private and publicly listed companies on the strategic and practical implications of business activity.
We have considerable experience in assisting boards and management with matters such as corporate governance, operational models, restructuring, incentive schemes and organisational structuring. We advise our clients on all areas of company law, from choosing a company structure to compliance with relevant legislation. We also assist with the resolution of shareholder and other disputes.
We advise on all types of acquisitions (both private and public M&A), sales and restructurings, including mergers and demergers. Our lawyers provide a complete range of services covering the entire acquisition process, from preliminary inquiries and strategic assessments to negotiations, drafting of necessary documents and registration.
At Hjort, we believe in compact M&A teams, a clear process-management structure and practical risk-management solutions. This is why we tailor our teams to the particular needs of each individual transaction.
Hjort is one of Norway’s leading litigation firms, and is experiencing increased demand for assistance with commercial legal matters of all kinds, including stock exchange and securities law, company law and tax law.
