We are honoured and pleased to congratulate the general counsels being admitted and nominated to The Legal 500’s GC Powerlist: Norway 2017. The role of general counsels has changed during the years, with an increasing focus on the importance of being present when the company evaluates strategic and operational possibilities, challenges and threats.

The management in large and medium sized companies is more dependent than ever before on having general counsels and legal departments that have a strong combination of academic skills and business acumen. General counsels and legal departments that possess such skills will contribute with value-added advice and recommendations to management and the board of directors in improving the competitive sphere for the company, inhibit and solve problems that occur and spot the possibilities a constantly developing world brings.

Arntzen de Besche works closely with general counsels and legal departments in large and medium-sized Norwegian and international companies within a high number of sectors and countries. The combination of the perspectives, challenges and possibilities they experience, motivates and thrives us in constantly focusing on new thinking, improvement of the services we provide and how we can even more fulfil the demands of the general counsels and legal departments. We know the challenges general counsel and legal departments face within different sectors.

Legal areas such as compliance, data security, privacy, digitalisation and corporate governance are given an increasingly higher focus and attention in the board room and management meetings. General counsels and law fi rms must be innovative to maintain strong competitive advantages. Again, we congratulate all of the general counsels who have been admitted into the GC Powerlist. Your work, knowledge and dedication provide true value to shareholders, employees and stakeholders.
