Overview

Horten’s clients can be sure to receive advisory services that include expertise from all our legal disciplines, which the specific transaction requires. We guide our clients throughout the process – from thorough analysis and preparation to the actual takeover, implementation and following quality assurance in respect of the bought company. We know that time, fast response and efficiency are important factors for a successful transaction. And we adjust our counselling thereafter.

In an environment characterized by innovation, liberalisation and privatization, creativity and commercial understanding are crucial factors for success. Our corporate team is made up by lawyers with extensive transaction experience. We understand that in our client’s business reality plays a crucial role. This is why industry knowledge and commercial insight are important elements in our counselling. We therefore ensure our client a solution that is not only legally correct, but also practically useful and meaningful from a business perspective.

We advise on buying and selling companies that are present in several countries. Because of our cooperation with foreign law firms, we have the means to establish a strong, international transaction team that can handle our client’s transnational transactions.
