Freshfields in Scandinavia
Investors looking to Scandinavia need lawyers who have not only an global perspective but also know and understand the business and legal environment across the Nordic countries.
With a particular focus on the energy, oil and gas, pharma, biotech and TMT sectors, we have a long-standing history of advising those seeking to invest in the region.
And we’ve also helped Scandinavian banks, corporations and governmental entities looking to invest elsewhere – in Europe and beyond.
We are closely affiliated with the region’s best local law firms. Working with them as a single international team, we give clients the local and cross-border advice they need. And they know they can rely on us to bring their mandates to a satisfactory conclusion.
