In addition to winning Norwegian Law Firm of the Year at the Chambers Europe Awards 2017, we are ranked in all categories in this year's survey.

Earlier this year, Wiersholm confirmed its top position when Chambers Global was released and now the results are also ready from the Chambers Europe 2017 survey.

Wiersholm is one of two Norwegian law firms that are ranked in all 16 categories. Our lawyers are given Band 1 – the highest ranking – in the following categories: Banking and Finance, Capital Markets, Corporate M&A, Dispute Resolution, Competition/Antitrust, Public Procurement, Employment, Construction, Shipping and Tax.

Friday night, (07.04.2017) Wiersholm also received Chambers & Partners’ exclusive award “Norwegian Law Firm of the Year 2017” at Chambers Europe Awards 2017 in London. Wiersholm was nominated along with BA-HR, Schjødt, Thommessen and Wikborg Rein.

This award comes in addition to The Lawyer’s prestigious “Nordic Law Firm of the Year” award that we received in March. Our competitors then were Borenius (Finland) Dittmar & Indrenius (Finland), Krogerus (Finland), Kromann Reumert, (Denmark) Magnusson (Denmark) and Thommessen (Norway).

Chambers has been ranking the best commercial lawyers since 1990 and now covers 185 jurisdictions. Chambers and Partners is regarded as the leading directory when it comes to giving clients insight into the lawyers’ expertise.

It is one of the strongest names among the Norwegian firms: it is full-service and covers all the areas.
