Legal market overview

In Norway, the ‘Big Three’ full-service firms – Advokatfirmaet BA-HR DA, Thommessen and Wiersholm – dominate the upper echelons of the rankings across the majority of practice areas, with Selmer, Advokatfirmaet Schjødt AS and Wikborg Rein close behind.

Firms such as Arntzen de Besche, Advokatfirmaet Haavind AS, Kluge Advokatfirma DA and Advokatfirmaet Steenstrup Stordrange DA are smaller, but provide a comparable service in certain practice areas. Also of note is the recently merged Advokatfirmaet Simonsen Vogt Wiig, which now has significant resources at its disposal.

Notable boutiques include Aabø-Evensen & Co Advokatfirma and Advokatfirmaet CLP DA for corporate law; Kyllingstad Kleveland Advokatfirma DA for oil and gas; Ro Sommernes Advokatfirma DA for insolvency; and Torkildsen, Tennøe & co. Advokatfirma AS for real estate.
