Nordanö is known for advising on the largest and most complex property transactions in the Nordic region.
The firm was founded as Leimdörfer in Stockholm in 1992 with a belief that the Swedish property market would benefit from the financial approach applied within investment banking. With the ever-increasing demand for real estate in the Nordics, Nordanö has expanded its business to the other Nordic capitals. Today the firm has offices in Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen and, beginning today, in Oslo.
"There is great international appetite for Nordic real estate, not the least in the Norwegian market. The share of transactions in Norway with foreign buyers has increased from 7% to 27% in the last 5 years. We also notice increasing interest from Norwegian investors for acquisitions in the other Nordic countries. Nordanö’s Nordic and international experience combined with a strong local team means that we have much to offer to the market," says Lukas Tofterå, Partner at Nordanö in Norway.
The firm is wholly owned by active partners and the team consists of 40 people. Since 2016, Nordanö has advised on deals with an aggregated underlying property value of more than €12 billion and has been named ‘Best Nordic Real Estate M&A Adviser’ six consecutive years in Euromoney’s annual survey. The survey is based on interviews with more than 2,000 advisers, banks, property owners and property developers from 75 different countries.
"Many international investors view the Nordic region as one single market and several of our clients have requested a pan-Nordic adviser, with an overall Nordic overview coupled with local presence in each country. We can now offer that at Nordanö, and that makes us unique," says Sven Dahlin, Partner at Nordanö.
