Public authorities regulate many aspects of private business activities in Norway. Regulation under public law in the form of acts and regulations is extensive, and a major part of private businesses is subject to supervision. This means that these businesses are bound by requirements with regard to conduct and reporting.

We have great expertise on public law and long experience with assisting private businesses in their contact with public authorities. Several of our lawyers have work experience from the civil service and local administration. We have also litigated several cases before the EFTA court and carried out several hearings before the European Commission.

We actively support our clients in application processes, competitive tendering, open tenders and appeals to public bodies, including to the the Norwegian Parliamentary Ombudsman for Public Administration and in proceedings before the courts of law. Good advice requires thorough knowledge of the enterprises' business sector and conditions of competition. We see the businesses' needs in a greater context and suggest good solutions within the legal limits that apply.
