    Recent Matters

    • Aug 2016

      We advised Bank of America in a USD 150 Million secured finance transaction with a US based multinational chemical corporation. The complex Dutch partnership structure of the borrower created some interesting challenges with respect to the security package to which we found appropriate solutions. We worked together with US co-counsel Shearman & Sterling in this matter.

    • Dec 2015

      Houthoff Buruma advised, together with Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, TeliaSonera in connection with the divestment of its interest in the Nepalese operator Ncell to Axiata, one of Asia’s largest telecommunication groups, for USD 1,030 million on a cash and debt free basis. At the same time, TeliaSonera will dissolve its economic interests in the 20 percent local ownership and receives approximately USD 48 million. The transactions are conditional on each other and subject to regulatory approval. TeliaSonera, listed in Stockholm and Helsinki, is the dominant telephone company and mobile network operator in Sweden and Finland.
