Business Areas

Mergers & Acquisitions

M&A transactions involve complex work that cuts across a wide range of legal areas. Our M&A team consists of senior and experienced lawyers with in-depth understanding of the mechanics of an M&A transaction and the key value drivers. We make complex simple. Our team will guide you through all stages of the transaction process, be it initial high level discussions, due diligence process or final negotiations of the transaction documents.

Our clients consist of private equity funds and their portfolio companies, as well as corporates and founders/entrepreneurs. Through our Management Advisory practice, we have gained valuable understanding of the key interests for the founders and/or management when it comes to an M&A transaction.

Management Advisory

Private equity transactions raise a number of complex management issues that are of central importance to buyers, sellers and management alike. A well-advised management is in the interest of all parties. Good advice to managers facilitates a smooth transaction and benefits all parties involved. Our management advisory team is market leading and has a vast experience of advising management teams on exits and re-investments, guiding them through the complicated landscape surrounding a private equity investment.

Venture Capital and Growth

We have the privilege of being part of the most vibrant Nordic start-up community in years and support some of the best and most prosperous serial entrepreneurs and Venture Capitalists in the Nordics. For many companies venture financing is the only available mean of raising capital. Hansen provides advice on all sorts of venture financing, whether debt or equity, or other forms of financing, such as contribution of assets, resources or skills. We have a well-established network of investors and other types of advisors that we often involve in our projects.

Corporate Commercial

Regardless of industry, all businesses have to adapt to a fast-paced and changing environment where technology and digitalization becomes an integral part of what every business does. Furthermore, data and intellectual properties often represent the biggest and most valuable assets for a company. Out team provides expertise in the negotiation and drafting of licenses specifically tailored to the protection of technology and the full range of intellectual property rights as well as drafting and negotiating distribution and other channel agreements, outsourcing agreements, manufacturing and supply agreements, terms-of-use and terms-of-service. We also represent and assist clients with privacy and data security matters and provide advice on intellectual property rights and e.g. open source agreements as part of our due diligence work in connection with company acquisitions.

We have gained, through years of hands-on experience, a deep knowledge of the developments in IPR management and digital businesses. With this knowledge, combined with technical understanding and legal know-how, we provide clear advice in a changing and emerging market. Many of our clients retain us early as a sounding board and for guidance when developing its business models and business policies.

Join us

As of today we are twelve lawyers, each of us dedicated to our respective area of expertise. We aim to break new ground in our traditionally quite conservative business, and are actively inviting people who dare to think differently to join us.

What we offer new members of our firm is the opportunity to work with a group of top-performing clients in a highly specialized and supportive team. Although we regard performance and work ethics as highly valuable traits, we do also appreciate the need for an overall balance between work and private life as an important cornerstone for long-term achievements. We actively encourage the members of our team to embrace all the different interests that makes life rich and interesting; be it sports or bird-watching.
