Event Report

For the first time since a Covid-enforced hiatus, The Legal 500 travelled to Oslo to launch the latest edition of our highly successful Norway Powerlist series, in this case The Legal 500 GC Powerlist: Norway Teams 2022. Head of research for the GC Powerlist series Joe Boswell and head of GC Powerlists Gurpartap Basra joined some of the finest legal minds in Norway from the in-house legal teams lucky enough to count themselves among the 2022 list.

The event kicked off at the House of Oslo conference centre in the heart of the central business district, where Arntzen de Besche partner Stein Ove Solberg provided opening remarks before the audience were treated to a panel discussion. Thor Winther, legal director of DNV, Mette Stokke, general counsel of Deloitte, Kristian Berentsen, chief legal officer of Heimstaden and Tonje Pareli Gormley, general counsel: Middle East at DNO discussed how to best communicate with internal clients and the changing role of the general counsel.

After this, the party moved to Arntzen de Besche’s brand-new Ruseløkkveien offices to enjoy beautiful panoramic views from their rooftop garden, accompanied by food and drink.

A huge thank you to long-term partners of The Legal 500, Arntzen de Besche, for helping to make this event possible, to Stein Ove Solberg for his opening remarks at the event, to all the panellists who contributed to our roundtable, and to everyone who was able to make it to the launch ceremony. We look forward to next year!
