Johan Häger is head of the firm’s finance and restructuring practice in Sweden.
Mr Häger works closely with the firm’s private equity and corporate M&A teams, the real estate team, tax structuring team and other practices to achieve the best possible results in complex restructurings and security enforcements. He cooperates closely with financial restructuring advisers, CROs and local in-court-administrators, which enables him to efficiently coordinate a team to facilitate a restructuring of both operations and balance sheet. He has extensive experience in LBO financings and high-yield bonds and acts frequently for both bond arrangers and borrowers with the structuring and negotiation of these instruments, which experience is essential for successful restructurings of bank loans and bonds.
Mr Häger’s restructuring and insolvency credentials span cross-border reorganisations in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Germany, the United Kingdom, Canada, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. He acts for local and international banks, as well as for private equity clients and corporate borrowers. Recent engagements have included Saab Automobile, Nobina, Basler Fashion, the PMS Group, Dentutech, Centrumkompaniet, Propinvest, Ittur, Homburg and Dannemora Mineral.
Mr Häger has, in the growing high-yield bond market, been engaged both by bond
holders, private equity firms and corporate borrowers in restructurings involving senior
bonds, junior bonds and bank debt.
