The firm: Advokatfirma MNA Kogstad Lunde & Co was formed in 1995 by Eivind Kogstad and Trond Werner Lunde, and has since been a medium-sized boutique firm that has provided specialist insurance law services to Norwegian and international insurers. All partners and employed lawyers have been recruited from the insurance industry.

From the beginning, the firm has been known to have some of the most respected legal minds within their field, and at the same time it is known for being practical, commercial, approachable and “down to earth”.

Within the field of insurance law, the firm solely represents insurance and reinsurance companies (or their customers). The firm is now representing more than 40 different Norwegian and international insurers.

Kogstad Lunde & Co is Kennedys’ associated office in Norway. Kennedys is a rapidly growing international law firm with 32 offices around the world and 16 associated offices and consists of more than 1,700 people. Kennedys has expertise in insurance / reinsurance law and liability and is recognised by leading industry directories and commended by clients around the world.

In addition to Kennedys UK and Kennedys DK in Copenhagen, the firm has an especially close cooperation with the law firms NorelidHolm in Stockholm and Castrén & Snellman in Helsinki. The firms work together to provide a seamless legal service in Scandinavia and beyond.

In 2012 the partners in Kogstad Lunde & Co established FaVer AS (Fact Verification, www.faver.no) – which is now Norway`s leading independent environment providing investigative services to the insurance industry.

Areas of practice: Kogstad Lunde & Co assists and advises on all aspects of insurance law, tort law and litigation, including both private and corporate insurance, policy wording, coverage advice and advice on compliance matters. We handle both small and big scale claims, including personal injury, professional indemnity, product liability, recall, subrogation and fraud.

Our expert advice is based on a deep understanding of the insurance market in our region.

The partners at Kogstad Lunde & Co have an average of more than 20 years of experience working as attorneys specialized within insurance law and dispute resolution. Consequently, our firm has a broad network, which gives the firm the possibility of providing clients with direct, swift and “tailor made” advice taking into account the market situation, market standards and special corporate issues, beside – of course – the highest level of specialized legal insurance advice.

The fact that all the lawyers at Kogstad Lunde & Co have worked almost solely with insurance and dispute resolution throughout their entire careers gives them a unique opportunity of sharing experience, expertise and know-how.

Several of the largest insurance companies in Norway have used our partners as teaching supervisors for their own employed claims handlers and attorneys.

We act as counsel for the Norwegian Government / the Attorney General in the appeal courts in cases involving the National Insurance. We also act as counsel for the Norwegian Government / the Patients’ Injury Compensation Board and the National Complaint Board for Health Services.
