    • We represent both employers and employees throughout all stages of labour disputes. In each case, we seek a peaceful settlement (which is also cheaper for our clients). However, if the parties do not reach agreement, we defend the rights and interests of our clients in all court and pre-trial proceedings.
    • The construction sector generates millions in annual revenue, and contracts are drawn up for each and every krone to be spent. The number of contracts the construction business necessitates is immense and, unfortunately, legal paperwork is often riddled with just as many errors.
    • We provide assistance to construction companies in drawing up contracts, revising and, if necessary, amending contracts drawn up by others, analyse the limits of contractual and statutory civil liability, demand the fulfilment of obligations on behalf of our clients and assist them in resolving disputes.
    • A large part of our work consists of analysing the situation before a contract is signed. This is done for the purpose of identifying and eliminating risk factors and thus preventing the occurrence of errors and material damages.
    • A good business strategy is to always consult with a lawyer when negotiating a contract, before any disputes even arise. This allows the client to avoid major conflicts, dead-end situations and, of course, considerable litigation costs.
    • Contrary to popular belief, there is no need to hire a real estate broker (megler) when selling real estate in Norway. Moreover, the cost of hiring a megler, taking into account their actual level of professional liability to the buyer for incorrect or incomplete information about the property, seems unjustified.
    • We will assist you in dealing with various economic transactions and the transfer of ownership.
    • Do you know what the proprietary status of your spouse or cohabitant would be in the event of a divorce or death, including their status with regard to your creditors? Assets and money are not everything, but they play an important part in making us feel secure.
    • Before getting married or moving in, everyone should be aware of their future financial position and, if necessary, formalize their proprietary relations according to their wishes with regard to the future. In the event of a divorce, the preferences of either party have little decisive power, which is why we recommend thinking clearly, keeping a cool head, not giving in to emotion, and taking care of your economic situation before you move in together with your partner. We assure you that signing a prenuptial or domestic partnership agreement is not a prediction of divorce.
    • A large part of our work consists of detailing the division of property in the event of a divorce or termination of cohabitation. We can safely say that in the majority of cases, a prenuptial or domestic partnership agreement, had it been signed, would have considerably facilitated the process of dividing property, not to mention the fact that litigation costs in such cases would have been completely insignificant.
    • We help our clients to properly formalize their proprietary relations (both in a marital and domestic partnership): we draw up prenuptial and domestic partnership agreements, formalize donation transactions, etc. These are important documents that provide insurance against legal consequences in the event of divorce and ensure peace of mind.
    • We provide assistance in resolving matters related to the division of property and the conclusion of divorce settlements.
    • In the absolute majority of cases in Norway, marriage is dissolved by out-of-court settlement with the assistance of lawyers. However, if a marriage is dissolved without a divorce settlement, it is likely that issues neglected during the dissolution of the marriage will lead the spouses to seek a resolution in court.
    • In each case, we seek a peaceful settlement (which is also cheaper for our clients). However, if the parties do not reach agreement, we defend the rights and interests of our clients in all court and pre-trial proceedings.
    • Disputes concerning children are common between married and unmarried individuals. The most common disagreements are related to the following issues:

    • Child custody
    • Visitation rights
    • Alimony

     

    • An efficient resolution is essential in order to minimise the suffering experienced by a child during a dispute between its parents. In each case, we seek a peaceful settlement (which is also cheaper for our clients). However, if the parties do not reach agreement, we defend the rights and interests of our clients in all court and pre-trial proceedings.
    • It is common practice in Norway to forward the recovery of a late payment to debt collection agencies (inkasso). Such agencies administer the collection process on your behalf as the creditor. But is it really worth it? If the amount due is substantial, the answer is simple: NO. The limitation period for monetary claims passes quickly, so the recovery process should not be delayed. The sooner you begin the legal recovery process and ensure the seizure of the debtor’s assets, the easier it will be to recover the money. Seizure of assets prevents the debtor from disposing of their assets (the debtor cannot sell or transfer the assets) before settling with you. For more information, see moneyback.no.
    • In the event of corporate insolvency/bankruptcy, we consider whether there are grounds to impose personal liability on members of the company board, the chief executive officer or the shareholders of the company. Their responsibilities are defined, albeit vaguely, by the Law on Limited Liability Companies (Aksjeloven). The above persons are obliged to act fairly and reasonably. These concepts are very broad and include a number of obligations, which may result in personal liability if not fulfilled. For example, if the head of the company or the board were aware of the company’s insolvency, failed to take any action and signed agreements with partners in full awareness of the fact that they would not be able to pay the bills, they may be recognized as personally liable for the damages incurred by the creditors.
    • If the court recognizes that the decisions of the board or the head of the company influenced the insolvency or bankruptcy of the company or, for example, taking into account the financial situation of the company, the management of the company did not have the right to conclude new agreements and thus cause damages to its partners, the head of the company or the members of the board have to assume personal liability and compensate the damages caused to the creditors at their own expense.
    • Under Norwegian law, contracts may be both verbal and written. Both verbal and written contracts have the same legal power. The only, yet essential, difference between verbal and written contracts is that the existence of the former is difficult to prove. This has a considerable impact on the cost of resolving associated disputes.
    • We assist our clients in drawing up different types of contracts.
    • We assist and represent our clients in the process of drawing up and signing bills of exchange and promissory notes. With such documents, the creditor can appeal directly to a bailiff and save time and money that might otherwise be used to cover costly legal proceedings if the debt is not repaid.
    • We provide advice on matters related to the incorporation of companies of different legal forms and the registration of foreign companies in Norway.
