Core values

Our values are teamwork, integrity, quality and dedication. They constitute the way we work and how we interact with our colleagues and our clients.


Teamwork describes how we work and behave towards each other. By joining forces as one firm, we can raise each other to greater heights and achieve success both commercially and in terms of professional recognition. Teamwork is a key factor in ensuring our employees remain happy in their work.  For our clients, too, teamwork ensures a successful outcome.


We look after our clients’ interests with no thought for personal gain or risk. We work within the law, the Norwegian Bar Association’s Code of Conduct for Lawyers and our own ethical guidelines. We behave correctly and in a way that earns the respect of both clients and opposing parties, courts, the public administration and others. We keep our promises.


We deliver services of the highest quality from start to finish. We tailor our services to suit the individual case and the individual client’s needs, and we always work to the highest standards of professionalism. We provide advice that is cogent, understandable and presents clients with a clear picture of their options. We are easy for our clients to get hold of, respond rapidly to their requests and help keep matters moving speedily towards a successful conclusion. At Arntzen de Besche, we are quick to adopt new technologies that enhance our service delivery. 


Once we have accepted an assignment, we work unwaveringly to see it through. We want our clients to feel that we are fully dedicated to their cause and will do our utmost on their behalf. We are a learning organisation that is passionate about expanding our knowledge of the law and our understanding of the business sectors in which our clients operate. We are dedicated to developing each other individually and the firm as a whole.
