Glittertind has one of Norway’s foremost and largest professional environments within construction contract law and assists market operators within the building and construction industry during all phases of the project. We are top ranked in both Chambers and Legal 500, and have repeatedly been voted Norway’s best construction law firm by Finansavisen‘s annual lawyer survey.
Whether you are a developer, main contractor, subcontractor, consulting engineer, architect or have another role in the project – issues of a legal nature will arise at any stage of a construction project. This may relate to the choice of implementation model and construction form during the tender and contracting stage, it could relate to follow-up of contracts and disagreements over time and money during the implementation phase, and it could relate to assistance in final settlement discussions and dispute resolution after the project has been completed.
In a construction project, strategic, technical and legal assessments are also closely linked, and specialist knowledge and experience are essential. Our lawyers are specialists, and work with building and construction on a daily basis. We assist several of the industry’s heavyweights and professional organisations and have first-hand knowledge of and insight into developments within the industry. Several of our lawyers have worked as corporate lawyers or served on the board of Norway’s largest construction companies, some have additional education within engineering, some have written publications on construction law, and all have significant litigation experience.
Glittertind’s focus on general civil procedure also ensures extra weight and experience in construction disputes that end up in court. Our lawyers have litigated a number of the principal cases within construction law on which the Supreme Court has delivered judgement over the past 20 years.
