Commercial Property

Wikborg Rein offers legal services to Norwegian and international participants in all areas of commercial property law, both in the private and the public sector. Our practice area covers all aspects of property transactions including sale and purchase of property or owning entities, and in addition property development, structuring and negotiations of lease agreements, construction law, zoning regulation, traditional property law, and dispute resolution.

The Wikborg Rein commercial real estate team has been involved in the majority of the largest and most complex property transactions undertaken in Norway during the recent years and has vast experience in bidding processes, due diligence and is often appointed to front negotiations of share or asset purchase agreement. The team is backed by the firm's internal expertise in tax, financing, competition law and traditional property law.

We place great emphasis on effective and well structured procedures and negotiations;

  • Securing high quality of investment memos or prospectuses before approaching the market, will simplify the process and enhance probability of a successful completion of the transactions.
  • Precisely drafted documents, adopting recognized terms and conditions, expedite negotiations, reduce the risk of misunderstandings and help visualize distribution of risk between the parties.
  • Lease agreements are often fundamental to a property developer, careful consideration of lease agreements, and the legal implications reduce the risk of future disputes.

Wikborg Rein’s real estate team consists of more than 20 highly qualified lawyers, headed by Ingrid Høstmælingen.

Wikborg Rein is member of Norwegian Green Building Council.
