Tax law is characterised by internationalisation, a changing world economy and technological developments. Norwegian tax law has become more complex and is increasingly affected by international legal developments. An inadequate understanding of applicable regulations may have major repercussions for businesses. We provide clear and practical advice, thereby enabling our clients to attain their commercial objectives in the most effective manner.
With more than 20 lawyers, Thommessen has one of Norway’s very largest and most experienced tax teams. We cover all tax law practice areas, with a focus on transactions, the equity and debt markets, joint ventures, fund establishment, real estate, renewable energy, shipping, as well as oil and gas.
