We are experts of employment and work place law. Based on years of experience as trusted advisors, from in-house counselling, as judges and from lecturing, our team represents long and senior expertise with all relevant employment scenarios. We help manage our clients’ labour law related risk. We handle clients in all sectors and branches of business and commerce, employer organizations and labour unions, and we have in depth knowledge of sector specific characteristics.
We deal with the lifecycle of employment relationships, from drafting bespoke employment agreements with adequate restrictive measures or requested incentive schemes, assessing and establishing recruitment routines and avoiding discrimination, onboarding, setting up whistle blowing arrangements, pension schemes, procedures and requirements related to business transfers, outsourcing matters, reorganizations and redundancies, claims for and drafting of CBAs, terminations due to individually related matters such as sickness or underperformance, working hours matters – you name it. We are specialists at advising foreign entities either setting up Norwegian business or posting or seconding employees to Norway for a restricted period.
Through our team’s handling of such great number of employment matters, we are also very keen and experienced litigators. Dispute management is a major and integral part of our work and our instructions.
We also handle every day corporate and contractual matters, especially for clients based outside Norway.
Compliance continues to grow in importance and in our portfolio. Pursuant to extensive statutory requirements we are experienced in setting up whistle blowing procedures and mechanisms, but also handling and investigating incoming claims and cases, even related to anti-corruption, anti-money laundering, transparency on working conditions, CSR and more. In addition, we handle GDPR and data privacy matters on a regular basis
