As opposed to the traditional culture of top tier commercial law
firms, Schjødt has always given equal priority to dispute
litigation and corporate law. Thus, we have an excellent balance of
talent and skills, from senior partners to young associates,
all dedicated to excellence in their chosen profession. Our
emphasis on comprehensive training, coaching and hands-on
experience has created an innovative and goals-oriented
Our track record is second to none. We see that the best results are achieved by specialization, i.e. litigation lawyers handling litigation matters, rather than allowing client-account lawyers to have their day in court as has often been the case in Norwegian firms. We were the first of the major firms to adopt this approach and we have highly developed methods and techniques to ensure that clients are provided with a cost-efficient team comprising dispute resolution experts and specialists on the relevant field of law or the client's industry.
We have experience from many of Norway's largest and most ground-breaking court cases and we have a significant and increasing market share in international arbitration and litigation. Our international experience is illustrated by our work with global clients in the oil & gas industry, including oil services, where we have a leading position. Construction, infrastructure, intellectual property and pharmaceuticals are other examples of sectors where Schjødt's reputation in Norway and abroad is unparalleled.
