Arntzen de Besche greets the year with a new partner, and specialist counsel

We start the year by welcoming Alexander Plows as a new partner at Arntzen de Besche. As one of Norway’s leading lawyers in insurance and dispute resolution, he will help strengthen our team further. We are also proud to appoint Atle Stensrud as Specialist Counsel. This is a newly established position for employees with extensive expertise and long experience in their field. Stensrud has been part of our banking and financing team for more than 20 years, and is one of our key contributors to professional development at our firm.

Alexander Plows

Plows comes from DLA Piper, where he has been a partner since 2015. He started his career as a solicitor at the London firm Dentons. In 2006 he moved back to Norway, obtained a Norwegian licence, and became a senior associate at law firm Thommessen, before moving on to DLA Piper as an associate partner in 2012.

Throughout his career, Plows has primarily worked with insurance and dispute resolution. On the insurance side, he has assisted the insurance market in complex claims and coverage disputes under insurance policies and reinsurance agreements. He has particular experience with financial institutions insurance, liability insurance, D&O insurance, W&I insurance and cyber insurance. Plows also has extensive experience with international arbitration proceedings, particularly concerning reinsurance and energy.

“We are pleased that Plows has chosen Arntzen de Besche. As one of Norway’s leading lawyers in his fields, he brings with him very valuable expertise and experience. He is a solid addition to our strong professional environment in insurance and dispute resolution, and we look forward to having him on board,” says Eivind Landmark Tandrevold, partner and head of the dispute resolution team at Arntzen de Besche.

Atle Stensrud

Stensrud has been with Arntzen de Besche since he started as an associate in 2000. Over the past twenty years, Stensrud has assisted Norwegian and international companies, banks and financial institutions in various financing transactions. He mainly provides advice in relation to financing with an emphasis on bank loans, bond loans and restructuring, and has particular experience with financial transactions in the aviation sector and the oil and gas industry.

Two of our banking and financing department’s focus areas are the complex assignments outsourced by the aviation and energy sectors. Stensrud has worked with several major processes nationally, and has been involved in a number of complex cross-border processes in cooperation with foreign parties.

“Stensrud has been with the firm for many years and has a very solid expertise and experience that is important to us. We are pleased to give him the opportunity to strengthen the department and in his new role, he will help us continue our strong growth,” says Trond Kildal, partner and head of the banking and financing team at Arntzen de Besche.
