The Top 100-list ranks the most important and influential legal professionals in global wind.
In the Legal Power List 2020 Partner Bendik Christoffersen, Head of Thommessen's Renewable Energy and Infrastructure practice, is ranked as one of the top 100 lawyers in global wind. The list ranks and profiles the most important and influential legal professionals currently working in the global wind industry across in-house counsel and at law firms, and Christoffersen is ranked as the only Norwegian lawyer.
About Christoffersen, the ranking states: "Influential in the highly-active Nordics market, advising clients including GIG".
In the report, Richard Heap, Editor-in-Chief, writes:
"Companies and those who advise them will need to adapt fast for a world that is set to look very different in 18 months. That’s why this is a good time to look again at the top lawyers in wind. These are the people who have helped companies to negotiate the challenges they have faced so far. And they all need to be on top form as the global crisis ramps up."
- Earning a place on such a list is a great honour, and this really is an achievement of the Renewable and Infrastructure team at Thommessen, says Christoffersen.
The ranking is published by A Word About Wind, the world’s biggest community for people working on the financial side of the global wind industry.
