Mergers & Acquisitions

Schjødt has a market-leading practice on public and private M&A in Norway, acting regularly for major Norwegian and international corporations, private equity sponsors, investors and financial advisors.

The team is spearheaded by a group of partners made up of a mix of experienced practitioners and young up-and-coming lawyers, creating a dynamic integrated force across the firm's offices in Oslo, Stavanger, Bergen, Ålesund and Stockholm.

Our M&A team regularly acts on the largest and most complex transactions in the market and has over the last few years consistently had the highest volume of recorded deals among Norwegian law firms (source: Mergermarket).

We advise on all aspects of public and private M&A's, assembling teams adapted to the requirements and complexities of the individual transaction. Our experience spans wide from tailor-made domestic deals to multi-jurisdictional cross-border transactions where we work with some of the most sophisticated players in the global business community.

Schjødt is ranked as one of the leading transactional firms by all recognised rating agencies. Every quarter Mergermarket publishes a global overview of legal services within the area of M&A. The report shows that Schjødt has advised on more transactions than any other Norwegian Law Firm the last years.

We are proud of being awarded the presigeous prize "Norway Legal Adviser of the Year" by Mergermarket in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018.
