  • Commercial, Corporate and M&A: Tier 4

In recent years, Bull Co has strengthened its Corporate team, most recently with partner Erlend Balsvik, who joined us in 2018.  It is particularly gratifying that the team’s strong growth is verified through the team’s entry onto this year’s list, where no less than four of our Corporate lawyers are “Recommended Lawyers”:

“We have an up-and-coming corporate team that doubled its turnover from 2017 to 2018, and the pace going into 2019 is good. The current team’s expertise enables it to assist clients with all type of transactions,” said Eivind Bergo-Eriksen, who leads Bull & Co’s corporate group.

The Corporate team has extensive experience with transactions, especially within trade and industry, technology, renewable energy, service industries, facility management, and oil & gas. In recent years, the team has also focused on venture capital and start-up projects within these industries.

The Legal 500 says the following about the Corporate team:

“Bull & Co Advokatfirma AS combines ‘good business understanding with great experience’ and fields a team with ‘a goal-oriented approach, high competence levels and quick response times.’”

Among the recent cases the team has assisted with are the sale of YX Norge’s bulk business to Preem, Coor Service Management’s acquisition of West Facility Management, Fiber 1’s merger with Viken Fiber AS, Fredrikstad Energi AS’ sale of Norgesnett Holding AS, and the sale of Euro Elevator AS to Schindler AS.
