Other highlights include assisting Kleven Yard with a financial restructuring and acting for Kleven on an agreement with De Beers Marine Namibia for the construction of a specialised vessel to support seabed diamond mining operations. Norman Hansen Meyer joined from an in-house position and Øyvind Olimstad was promoted to the partnership.
