Offshore and shipping

We have worked closely with the oil and offshore sector and the maritime industry for over 40 years, and know the Norwegian continental shelf, the environment and the framework conditions within which clients and suppliers operate. We assist shipping companies, aquaculture companies, workshops, contractors and suppliers in all ocean-related activities.

Advice from our lawyers

Our long-term experience from the oil and gas sector has given us a solid industrial understanding and extensive project experience. We draw on this in our advice to companies in other industrial sectors such as aquaculture, renewable energy and shipping. We adapt our way of working to what is optimal for the client, and we often work integrated with the client’s project organisation.

Our assignments include transactions, financing assistance, provision of ongoing advice and dispute resolution. Moreover, we have extensive experience as advisors in large construction projects, including construction of oil installations, pipelines and processing plants, shipbuilding and development of innovative aquaculture facilities. We provide assistance in all phases of a project, from the concept stage right up to the final settlement. We provide advice related to the following:

  • tender processes
  • tax and corporate structure
  • contract drafting
  • contract negotiations
  • capital raising
  • warranty follow-up and claims handling
  • dispute resolution and arbitration

The aquaculture industries have experienced tremendous growth in recent years and are today our second largest export. In the past, much of the activity was centred on oil and gas enterprises, while we are now seeing an increasing number of players from renewable energy and aquaculture companies.

Our long-term experience from the oil and gas sector has given us a solid industrial understanding and extensive project experience in aquaculture-related industries. Our lawyers possess internal experience from oil companies and suppliers, enabling us to work well integrated with the individual project organisation.
