Asset management and Private Equity

The asset management and private equity business has grown substantially in recent years, and the Nordic market is attractive to foreign investors too. At the same time, the business has become subject to stricter public regulation.

This increasing complexity means higher and higher demands for legal special expertise, professional comprehensiveness and extensive knowledge of the markets. Wiersholm provides a complete range of legal services to clients with various types of asset management/investment activities. Our complete range of services makes it possible for us to assist our clients in the investment phase, throughout the investment and when the investment is to be realised. By choosing Wiersholm as the total supplier, important system values are created in the relationship with the client, meaning that the advisory services become faster, more precise and more adjusted to meet the client's commercial needs.
