Firm Overview:

Our strong market share and extensive portfolio of foreign clients and matters are an important strategic advantage for Schjødt and every day we work to further improve our insight, skills and services as we work with foreign clients doing business in Norway and with Norwegian clients with activities or interests abroad.

Norway is an open and international country as regards trade and investment within almost all sectors except agricultural merchandise. Oil & gas, offshore services, fish farming, technology and shipping are all extremely international business sectors. Norway is not a member of the EU but, due to its membership of the European Economic Area, it is legally bound by EEA Law as regards the freedom of goods, services, people and financial resources.

Among our professionals are American, Chinese, British, German, Swedish, and Danish lawyers; indeed, 50% of our lawyers have legal education and/or work experience abroad. To ensure focus, specialist skills and quality client services, we have established German, Chinese and US/UK desks. We also have excellent relationships with law firms on all continents.

We have advised foreign investors on more M&A transactions than any other Norwegian firm in recent years and have seen a significant increase in international litigation and arbitration.
