Financing often plays a key role in transactions. This applies whether the issue is acquisition of an enterprise, financing of major assets and projects, or the raising of capital for current operations.

The market for raising capital is international, and traditional sources of financing have been supplemented by new players and alternative products, increasing access to loan financing but also providing alternative options for placement of excess liquidity. Both lenders and borrowers require advisory services, and the advice given now is what will be tested when the market once again moves in the other direction.

We advise lenders as well as borrowers on debt financing. Our clients include Danish and non-Danish banks, private equity funds, enterprises and corporations. Regulatory issues, derivatives, structured products, acquisition financing and the financing of all types of assets are among our core skills, and we are specialised in the legal, financial and strategic aspects related to acquisition and divestment of enterprises.

Our advisory services include:

  • Financing law
  • Syndicated loan agreements
  • Acquisition financing
  • Asset financing
  • Project financing, including PPC/PPP, infrastructure and energy
  • Structured products
  • Investment grade loans
  • Bond issuance and programme establishment
  • Financing via international capital markets
  • Regulatory issues (products and banks)
  • Securitisation
  • Guarantees and provision of security
  • Refinancing and distressed loans
  • Derivatives, including ISDA Master Agreement and Credit Support Annex
  • Capital structure and tax issues
  • Self-financing

Moreover, our lawyers are among the most experienced in Denmark in the area of financing and leasing of trains, airplanes and ships.

When required to ensure our clients the best advisory services, we cooperate with lawyers from our other areas of expertise such as M&A and Corporate Matters, Real Estate & Construction, Regulatory Issues, Insolvency & Restructuring, Tax, Energy & Supply.
