Practices

Engineering & Machinery

How do you protect and commercialize your intellectual property in emerging markets? How do you ensure that your agreements are enforceable and that your limitations of liability are valid? Are you sure that deals are structured as tax-efficiently as possible?

We have a strong commitment to understanding and working in the engineering sector as it continues to develop. We help Nordic engineering companies pursue ambitious international expansion programs with strategic advice and, with our experience and cultural understanding, build bridges between our clients and local players. With our global network of contacts, we can coordinate advice across jurisdictions.

International engineering companies investing in the Nordic region can rely on us for advice on everything from M&A, tax and financing to intellectual property and employment law.

Our lawyers have considerable experience working with companies in emerging markets. We have followed our multinational clients to countries in Eastern Europe and Asia to formulate IP strategies, make acquisitions, negotiate agreements and establish new facilities. We have also assisted companies in selling assets to foreign buyers and, in the process, we have gained a strong understanding of the cultural differences between European and Asian businesses, as well as an appreciation of the issues that can derail a deal process—or ensure that it moves smoothly to a conclusion.
