During his time in private practice, he advised Norwegian and international banks, investment firms, fund managers and insurers on regulatory and compliance matters. He also worked extensively with merger & acquisition and capital market transactions within the financial services and asset management industries, as well as worked with fund establishments on behalf of managers and sponsors.
