About

Provided by BAHR

With Norway’s banking markets in good shape and Norwegian law increasingly popular for sizeable international financing transactions, BAHR’s banking and finance team advises banks and borrowers on many of the largest and most innovative transactions in the region.

We assist financial institutions including investment and retail banks, insurers, asset managers, investment funds and leasing companies, as well as borrowers, on the full range of financing transactions. Particularly well-known for our work on major international syndicated transactions, bond issuances, and the creation of bond programmes, we also handle asset finance and leasing, structured finance and derivatives, leveraged and acquisition finance, real estate finance, infrastructure finance and debt restructuring.

Clients turn to our banking team for advice on their most critical deals and, with over 30 specialists, we offer broad expertise along with a deal-oriented approach and flair for innovation. As well as many of the largest financing deals of recent years, we acted in the largest syndicated secured loan facility and the first RBL financing under Norwegian law, the largest high yield bond issue in Norway, and the first securitisations by a Norwegian bank and by foreign branches of a Norwegian bank.

In addition the group offers cutting-edge advice in the related field of banking regulation, where we were, for example, the first to secure authorisation from the Norwegian FSA under the new AIFM legislation.
