Zepos & Yannopoulos advised the maritime safety equipment manufacturer and global service provider VIKING Life-Saving Equipment A/S on the acquisition of Norsafe, a well known Norwegian boatbuilder. Established in 1903, Norsafe produces a full range of free-fall lifeboats and fast rescue boats. The synergies behind Norsafe’s entry into the VIKING group is that the entities share identical missions, both focusing on people's safety and leading their respective markets through constant innovation.
The cross-border transaction was coordinated by Advokatfirmaet Selmer AS (Are Herrem).
