Senior Lawyer, Ålesund Download vCard

Since I joined Schjødt in 2007 I have had a broad practice area, with main focus on maritime, oil service and technology. My key expertise is within M&As, investment structures and ownership structures. I have substantial experience with transactions and work regularly for reputable financial and industrial clients in Norway and abroad.

In addition to my M&A practice, I also advise clients on general contract law and other matters forming part of their day to day business.
