Norwegians Close $210M Loan for Miami-Dade Salmon Farm Amid Coronavirus
Attorneys Alberto Hernandez, Elena Otero, Faisal Kraziem, Danielle Moore and Brittany Fox were featured in the Daily Business Review for their role working remotely to secure new financing for a Norwegian salmon farming company, enabling it to complete construction of a new facility in Miami-Dade County. The company, Atlantic Sapphire, is known for pioneering a now-trademarked inland fish farming method in which salmon are raised in continuously purified water with strong currents to mimic their natural habitat. Holland & Knight's attorneys closed the deal in six weeks without delay, despite working remotely for most of the time.
"This transaction really highlights how interconnected our global economy is," Mr. Kraziem said. "At the end of the day, this is an exciting milestone for Atlantic Sapphire, as this additional capital really positions this already-great company to become a market leader in its industry, and we are just excited to have played a part."
