Chambers and Partners and Legal 500 are two of the most important rating agencies for law firms and individual lawyers. Their assessment of which law firms and lawyers are the most proficient in a variety of categories is based on interviews and conversations with the law firms’ clients and business partners.
For many years, Arntzen de Besche has been among the highest rated Norwegian law firms. We achieve strong scores within the fields of business, banking and finance, capital markets, commercial property, corporate transactions/M&A, dispute resolution, electricity and renewable energy, European and competition law, intellectual property, insurance, offshore construction and shipbuilding, oil and gas, restructuring and insolvency, shipping, tax and TMT.
The last time Chambers and Partners awarded the prize “Client service law firm of the year” to a Norwegian law firm, it was Arntzen de Besche they selected for that honour. The prize is awarded to firms which stand out for the quality and breadth of their service offering to clients.
