Area of expertise

Mergers & Acquisitions

We assist our clients in local and cross-border private mergers and acquisitions, offering a full range of transactional services, including acquisitions, divestments, mergers, joint ventures, intra-group re-organisations and corporate finance. We advise and provide legal expertise on complex cross-border transactions, private equity buyouts, small-cap acquisitions as well as venture capital investments and infrastructure deals.

Our clients range from Swedish and international blue-chip companies, private equity sponsors and corporates, investment banks and other financial institutions, and investment funds, to starts-ups.

Our team has extensive experience of Swedish and international transactions and has acted as lead and local counsel in several high-profile buyout transactions and complex acquisitions on behalf of Swedish clients investing in foreign entities and international clients coming to the Swedish market.

We work closely with our Equity Capital Market and Public M&A and Banking & Finance and Debt Capital Market teams, and have long-standing relationships with leading foreign law firms. This enables us to deliver integrated teams and seamless advice and services across practice areas and jurisdictions in the most complex and challenging M&A transactions.

We believe in combining business with a personal approach, and therefore bring in-depth expertise, dedication and hand-picked, engaged deal teams to our clients. We also offer multi-disciplinary teams from our four sector groups Digital & Technology, Life Science Healthcare and Foods, Energy & Infrastructure and Real Estate.

Our high quality of service and our determination to deliver outstanding results ensure that we build long-term relationships with our clients, aiming to be not just an exceptional legal adviser, but also their trusted business partner.
