On Friday, the nominations for this year's Talent Award were announced. The Norwegian Bar Association has reported a record level of interest this year among Norwegian law firms in the competition to win the award.

Each year, special attention is given to a particular topic and, this year, it is the effort of the individual firms to improve the gender balance which is being highlighted. The Norwegian Bar Association states that, this year, the jury has focussed their attention on the firms that can demonstrate tangible results, solutions and progress. This is the seventh time that the Norwegian Bar Association confers a talent award on the firm which distinguishes itself through excellence in talent work.

In addition to Wiersholm, the other nominees for this year’s talent award are the following firms:

  • Advokatfirmaet Hjort
  • Advokatfirmaet Lund & Co
  • Advokatfirmaet Mageli
  • Advokatfirmaet PwC

The award will be presented on 31 May during the function and dinner in connection with the Norwegian Bar Association’s professional development seminar.
