Hvordan kan vi hjælpe?

For at sikre den mest effektive rådgivning arbejder vi altid tæt sammen med vores klienters finansielle rådgivere, investment bankere og udenlandske advokater.

Udfordringer på området
Omfanget af corporate finance-transaktioner har i de seneste år været præget af finanskrisen. Markedet viser nu tegn på bedring, men der er fortsat knaphed på finansieringsmuligheder, og finansieringsgiverne er meget opmærksomme på risici.

Desuden er transaktionerne blevet mere komplicerede og er underlagt strammere tidsplaner, ligesom nye aktører er med til at udfordre det finansielle marked. Derfor efterspørger vores klienter både juridisk og strategisk ekspertrådgivning.

"Bech-Bruun are very professional,” says one client. “They are always doing a solid, thorough job, reverting quickly back to us.” Another adds: “Excellent. They are solution-oriented and pragmatic."

The banking and finance team bolstered its ranks this year with addition of partner Steen Puch Holm-Larsen to the line-up. This helped boost the practice, which is especially known for its work in acquisition finance and bond financing.

One example of this saw the firm advising the Solix Group on the financing for its acquisition of the Cembrit Group. Led by partner Morten Krogsgaard, this work was especially notable as the deal was structured to be paid in three tranches. Krogsgaard was again the key partner involved when the team assisted Credit Suisse on the Danish aspects of the $50 million royalty bond issuance by Zealand. This was the first ever royalty bond issued by a Danish company and involved a non-dilutive and non-recourse bond financing backed by 86.5% of the future annual royalties - and other payments which the company is entitled to - on lixisenatide – a drug used to treat diabetes – as a stand-alone product under its license agreement with Sanofi.
