Norway is a maritime nation. The maritime industry has been crucial for Norway’s development into a modern society.
With the discoveries of the oil fields in the North Sea, a new era started for this tradition-bound industry. Today, the Norwegian fleet’s value makes it the fifth largest in the world.
Several of the major Norwegian ship owner companies are amongst our clients. We have helped shape and influence developments in the Norwegian legislation within the shipping industry through the creation and study of the BONA model and the NIS Act.
Our lawyers have expertise and experience both from the dry and wet shipping law. We handle transactions, maritime accidents, marine insurance and litigation. We find the best solutions for shipping companies – whether they are facing issues related to their operating activity, organisation or taxes.
