BAHR – excellence as standard

Mergers can make or break companies. So it’s vital that your advisors have first class legal knowledge – vital but not enough: they also need deep understanding of clients’ industries and goals, allowing them to deliver creative, pragmatic advice and anticipate challenges. Sizeable resources are a must, as is skill in a range of ancillary areas, from finance and tax to IP and employment.

Consistently top ranked by legal directories and research organisations like Mergermarket, BAHR has all these things. From bolt-on acquisitions for private equity portfolio companies to major international M&A, we bring together appropriately sized teams with the right skills to guide our clients smoothly through all stages of the deal. Over time we have built a track record of success in significant transactions, such as:

  • Acting for Adevinta on its acquisition of eBay Classifieds Group for a value of USD$9.2 billion.
  • Acting for Oslo Municipality in the ground-breaking NOK 20 billion public takeover of Hafslund and its subsequent restructuring.
  • Acting for Vår Energi on its EUR 4,11 billion aquisition of Exxon Mobil Corporation’s Norwegian oil and gas business.

BAHR’s corporate lawyers operate in a wide range of sectors, advising leading players on IPOs, mergers, demergers, corporate restructurings, share issues, takeovers and bids, and are particularly known for their expertise in large, complex multijurisdictional transactions.
