Personal Legal Services
Litigation, prosecution and any legal process can become very expensive. The general rule in Norwegian law is that in civil proceedings the unsuccessful party has to pay the costs of the successful party. Before undertaking legal services, we are looking carefully into your case and give you our recommendations free of charge and without obligation. And we will of course inform whether you are entitled to free legal assistance and in that case the legal aid scheme, and also about any possible right to legal expenses insurance. When we are undertaking legal services, you will receive our confirmation of power & terms in writing.
First and foremost we provide legal services in dispute resolution and litigation. Such services require a thourough knowledge of your case before we enter into any binding service agreement. We try to resolve disputes by talking to avoid legal process because this is often cheaper, quicker and in other respects the better solution. However, if such negotiation fails, we will carefully carry out knowledgeable legal services for you through all necessary court proceedings at competitive rates, and whenever possible take proper action to recover your legal expenses from the other party. We do also provide legal advice in a wide range of fields, several fields that are not among the special features of this presentation.
