Bjarki DiegoBBA

Banking, finance and capital markets is a core practice at BBA//Fjeldco, where the team has considerable experience in financial structures; it is instructed by local banks, including Íslandsbanki, Kvika Banki and Landsbankinn, on multijurisdictional financing deals. Recent matters included advising Arctic Green Energy on a $200m debt refinancing of the company and its subsidiaries, where practice co-leader Halldór Karl Halldórsson acted as lead adviser. Elsewhere, the practice counts companies listed on Nasdaq OMX Iceland, as well as banking clients including Barclays, JP Morgan and HSBC, among its roster of clients. Team co-leader Ásgeir Ragnarsson is also a key contact in the practice, as is Bjarki Diego.

Iceland > Commercial, corporate and M&A

The corporate and commercial team at BBA//Fjeldco operates ‘like a fine-tuned engine’ and has a stellar track record advising sellers, buyers and financial institutions in M&A transactions. A recent highlight included acting for Icelandic insurance company TM, Kvika Banki and Lykill in a $700m merger. With a strong focus on transactional work and other corporate matters, the practice is well-placed to collaborate with its London office when advising international investors in Iceland, as well as domestic parties looking to grow their operations abroad. Experienced M&A partners Baldvin Björn Haraldsson and Einar Baldvin Árnason jointly lead the team, while Halldór Karl Halldórsson, Ásgeir Ragnarsson and counsel Bjarki Diego are also key contacts in the practice.
