- Why did you want to work in Wiersholm?
Law firms are experiencing major changes. New technology such as artificial intelligence and blockchain are changing the landscape, at the same time as the law firms are taking part in the clients’ digital journeys. I saw that Wiersholm was taking this seriously, and instead of talking about the challenges, they were talking about the opportunities. That was exactly what I wanted to be a part of!
- What were your prejudices about law firms?
I thought law firms were a conservative sector where things were progressing rather slowly, but always correctly.
- How do you use your competence in your day-to-day work?
As a business developer, you have to be a jack-of-all-trades and willing to learn. My working days are very varied and contain everything from analyses to project management and product development. Moreover, Wiersholm is working with the largest companies in Norway, which gives you an insight into many different industries as well as various challenges.
- How do we supplement each other’s competence through cooperation/in teams?
The professional competence in Wiersholm is sky-high – and working in teams with such competent people is incredibly rewarding. We have specialists in nearly all legal areas, but we also have project managers with an economic background, communication experts and client development managers. No one can be good at everything, but together we can be very good.
- Why is our work methodology – with interdisciplinary teams – a benefit to our clients?
There are several reasons, but with interdisciplinary teams, we ensure that all aspects of a case are considered. A legal advice can be absolutely correct, but at the same time useless unless viewed in relation to the client’s commercial situation.
