Dispute resolution and litigation

He has gained extensive experience as an adviser and has litigated a number of major cases involving contract interpretation/liability for damages in connection with breaches of partnership agreements, investment or supply contracts, cases involving professional liability, breach of good business practices and insurance claims, including the well-known “Terra-case”.
He has previously worked as a senior adviser in the tax law department of the Norwegian Ministry of Finance and adviser to the Norwegian Directorate of Customs and Excise, and has long experience and expertise in assisting clients with matters concerning value added tax, excise duties and customs/carriage of goods, during tax audits, appeals/complaints and litigation before the Courts.
