Banking and Financing Law

We cover all areas of finance and have particular expertise in oil and gas, shipping and offshore, aviation and acquisition finance.

We assist both those seeking financing and banks or other lenders who provide capital.

In cooperation with our clients, we are involved in drafting or reviewing all aspects of loan documentation and participate in negotiations on the terms of loan agreements and related documentation, such as intercreditor agreements.

Regardless of the type of financing, we are ready to assist our clients, whether banks, financial institutions, bondholders, private equity funds or borrowers in the oil and gas, offshore, shipping and aviation sectors.

Clear advice

Our advisory services are friendly and professional. We don’t believe in fighting every battle, but we are resolute when we take a stand. We are clear on what we believe is the best course of action and we focus on distinguishing between what is important to our clients and what is less important.

Broad international network

Often, financing agreements have international aspects. We then ensure that the best and most cost-effective expertise is obtained from one of our many international collaboration partners. We have deliberately chosen not to be part of an exclusive network, so that we can be free to recommend the law firm we believe is best suited to the specific assignment.

We have an extensive international network and are also an associate member of the Loan Market Association (LMA).

Tailored teams

If a financing matter involves questions related to other areas of law, whether it be tax law, petroleum law, securities law or another area, we engage specialists from our other departments, enabling our clients to benefit from our depth of knowledge in all relevant areas.

Exceptional knowledge of the oil industry

Our firm has assisted companies and governmental authorities in the petroleum sector for over 40 years. This has given us special insight into the rules that apply to industry players.

That’s why many in the petroleum and offshore industry come to us – and stay.

Restructuring and insolvency

We also have considerable experience with restructuring and insolvency. We help to secure and collect defaulted loans – both in Norway and abroad.
