I am working with Schjødt's Oil and Gas team in Stavanger, specialising in oil and gas transactions and oil taxation. My background from government service (6 years) and in-house industry experience (12 years)provides a useful background to understanding the legal and commercial issues involved. I have studied and worked in the USA and Belgium, and have Norwegian and English as my work languages.
