Comparative Guide to Acquisition Finance in Denmark

Updated: Apr 28, 2021

Comparative guide to acquisition finance in Denmark (Carsted Rosenberg), Sweden (Vinge), Switzerland (Lenz & Staehelin) and the United States (Willkie, Farr & Gallagher).

To assist our client with the structuring of cross-border acquisition finance transactions, we have prepared a guide on acquisition finance by leading banking & finance law fims in Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States. The Danish chapter has been prepared by Carsted Rosenberg, the Swiss chapter has been prepared by Lenz & Staehelin, the US chapter has been prepared by Willkie, Farr & Gallagher and the Swedish chapter has been prepared by Vinge Advokatfirma.

While cross-border acquisition finance transactions are predominantly governed by English, US or German law, domestic laws and regulations may have an effect of the overall structure of the transaction and the ensuing documentation. In order to ensure compliance with domestic law, acquisition finance documentation must be sufficiently adapted. The guide is intended to highlight the domestic differences that must be considered when the transaction is being structured, i.e. issues relating to financial assistance in a particular jurisdiction.
