Testimonials

This law firm carries a special status in the insurance community. Although not unique – there are a few others in this area. One of the elements that gives this practice an edge is that all lawyers have a work background in the insurance industry, and consequently a deeper understanding of the needs of the insurers.

Kogstad Lunde has a deep and undisputed understanding of the insurance market. Their commercial understanding combined with unparalleled legal expertise makes them a one of a kind in the Norwegian market for legal services to the insurance market.

Kogstad Lunde & Co are trustworthy and we can always trust them to represent us in the best way possible.

Kogstad Lunde & Co are specialised in insurance law and torts which makes them unique for handling big and complex claims in recourse. Experience and expertise are the key strengths for this firm. Compared to other suppliers for similar services they have the ability to act and make things happen.

Trond Werner Lunde is an approachable straight forward advisor with a great insight and an experienced overview of even the most complex cases.

Our claims mostly get handled by Tor Morten Austerheim. He is meticulous and always available for consultation. We also have some experience with some of the other lawyers in the firm, and we are always pleased with the handling of our cases/requirements.

Claus Brynhildsen’s knowledge of the legislation and industry is hard to match. He provides detailed and good argumentation.

We would specially recommend Terje Martinsen and Claus Brynildsen for their outstanding performance and knowledge of the business.

I have personally worked a lot with associate Per Kristian Lundkvist. Of the many associates I work with he is the one I value the most. He is unique in the way that he quickly understands what I am after and does not waste time on anything irrelevant. He gives practical advice and understands what we need help with and what we don`t need help with. He is also excellent in his field and I always trust his work and opinions.

Testimonials

They have 100% focus on the insurance industry and therefore are very well informed on all legal changes in the industry.

Kogstad Lunde & Co are trustworthy and represent us on the best terms. We can always trust them to represent us in the best ways.

This is a very solid firm with highly skilled lawyers who have extensive litigation experience. Both the breadth and depth of the lawyers’ experience make them unique in their particular areas of law. The lawyers are firmly rooted locally in Norway, but the firm’s close relationship with Kennedys Law makes it unique. If I need legal assistance and litigators, I always think of Kogstad Lunde first.’

The lawyers in Kogstad Lunde are very knowledgeable, approachable and easy to contact on both small and large legal issues. I am always treated with respect, and the lawyers are always looking for the best and most cost-effective solution to the case.

In particular, I would like to emphasise Trond Werner Lunde as the leader who always puts the needs of the client first, and whose experience and professional weight has great impact in dispute cases, litigation and arbitration. I would also like to mention Terje Marthinsen who is a very skilled and professionally engaged litigator.

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.
