We are proud to introduce Nanette Arvesen, Henrik Møinichen, and Anders Sundsdal as new Thommessen partners from 1 January, 2024.
- It is with great pleasure that we welcome Nanette, Henrik, and Anders as new partners. They all embarked on their careers at Thommessen following their studies and have since become well-liked team players with specialized expertise in their respective fields, states Managing Partner Sverre Tyrhaug.
Nanette and Henrik will enhance our dispute resolution team. With backgrounds in M&A/capital markets and maritime & offshore sectors, respectively, they have been instrumental in our firm's strategic refocus on dispute resolution since 2019/2020. Their expertise will further strengthen Thommessen's position as a leader in this domain.
Also, within employment law, Thommessen has taken a clear position in recent years. With increased legal regulation and reputation risk being key market drivers, we have noted a growing demand for employment law advice. The addition of Anders Sundsdal as a partner in this area reinforces our capabilities in handling employment law disputes, whistleblower matters, headcount reductions, compliance investigations, workplace accidents, and more.
