The attorneys at Tollboden are corporate lawyers with particular competence within contracts, restructuring and insolvency, transactions as regards mergers and take-overs, entreprise law, corporate law and property / real estate law. The interests of the clients are taken care in the best possible way through close follow-up, a high level of involvement and professional skills.
The transaction team at at Tollboden works with ownership change processes and assistance in buying and selling companies. Many of these assignments are done in conjunction with generational hand-overs, while others may want to sell to competitors or strategic buyers.
To ensure that the seller optimizes the pay-out for their businesses, we aim to be engaged at the earliest phase possible, so that we may contribute to the value-enhancing process of the company due to be sold. An ownership-change normally takes 6 to 18 months. Where an ownership change also involves transferring property and real estate, we also offer the corresponding services.
Every year, hundreds of Norwegian companies are bought or merged with other corporations. Even so, studies show that approx. 40% of such transactions do not create added value for the shareholders. The synergy effects envisioned are simply not realized. The Tollboden advisors have the competence and experience in succeeding with post-merger integration processes.
