Associate Katinka Ranberg from our Oslo office and senior associate Torbjørn Osland Bjelland from our Bergen office received the award on behalf of Thommessen at the Bar Association's party on Thursday 1 June.

 We are working to develop tomorrow's leading business lawyers and are very proud to have won the Bar Association's Talent Award 2017, says HR Manager Anne Therese Bogen.

The good results for internal recruitment were crucial to the jury's award. The jury was also charmed by the firm's double sponsorship scheme.

The Talent Award for 2017 is aimed at major law firms with more than fifty employees, who can show specific results for how the company values, develops and retains legal talents. The Bar Association's Talent Award is given for the sixth time this year. The award goes to the law firm that has the best ability to find, win and develop legal talents –regardless of gender, ethnicity or other external circumstances.
