This year's results confirm Wiersholm's position as a firm of market-leading professionals across the broad range of practice area categories, with more individual lawyers rankings than any other firm in Norway.

We are particularly pleased to see that our investigation and compliance team has gone straight in as top tier in the new category "Compliance". Jan Fougner and Georg Abusdal Engebretsen are both highlighted as leading lawyers in this field.
Wiersholm achieved top rankings in the following categories:
  • Banking & Finance
  • Capital Markets
  • Competition/Antitrust: Public Procurement
  • Compliance
  • Corporate/M&A
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Employment
  • Energy: Electricity
  • Tax

Whilst Wiersholm has consistently received top rankings over many years, we continue to see improvement in our results every year, with new names among our lawyers receiving recognition.

They are not only knowledgeable on the legal requirements, but also on how the authorities practise the rules, so there is a good practical approach to their advice.
