There is no such thing as a standard transaction process or a single measure or perception of “value”. Effective transaction advice requires specialist competence and a holistic and situation specific approach. We deliver tailored transaction support services for buyers and sellers including:
- Financial due diligence
- Commercial due diligence
- Project management
- Negotiation support
Questions regarding ownership issues require strategic and commercial understanding. Our team has experience from many industries and can bring new and important insights to the table. We help clients as an independent external adviser or as internal project management in areas such as:
- Ownership strategy
- Generational transition
- Business development
- M&A – acquisition and divestment
- Financial and operational restructuring
We assist clients and their legal advisers in conflict situations, be that in respect of district or appeal court proceedings, arbitration, or voluntary processes. Depending on the circumstances and client needs we provide:
- Expert opinions and reports in respect of valuation or estimation of loss or damages
- Expert witness testimony to support our opinions or reports
- Support to settlement proceedings
Partners in KWC have extensive experience as expert witnesses and as assistant judges in the Norwegian district courts and courts of appeal.
We provide specialized knowledge in investigating economic and financial matters and work closely with legal advisers in these situations
- Fraud and accounting manipulation
- Suspicion of irregularities or corruption
- Shareholder conflicts
- Accusations of breach of laws, regulations, or guidelines, made by third parties
Changes in market conditions, operational challenges and one-off incidents may inflict financial distress on companies, or in the worst-case bankruptcy. Protecting and considering the interests of stakeholders in a company experiencing financial distress is challenging. We typically assist the company or its creditors in restructuring processes through:
- Project management
- Business scenario modelling
- Independent business review
- Demergers or divestment of assets
KWC also undertakes advisory engagements for bankruptcy estates and has extensive experience in assisting companies undergoing court administered restructuring under the Norwegian Reconstruction Act.
