Testimonials

Very strong team and a leading firm within construction law.’

Glittertind is professional, precise, available, quick at responding, and highly competent. When you cooperate with Glittertind you clearly get the feeling that you are working with the best team.’

The courage to raise critical questions and to be tough and honest with the client if the client has a “weak hand” (but without overruling the client, and also without being stuck with that “first impression” of the “weak hand” if new details surface).’

Nils Henrik Pettersson has great capacity.’

Knowledge, competence and ability to adapt and give advice in any situation needed. They also have a strategical overview looking forward.’

Very impressive how fast Dølvik is able to understand the “big lines” of a construction project, and especially all the details of each claim that is disputed.

Pettersson can pick up small details and understand the importance of them even if others don’t see it at first.
