Overview

Advokatfirmaet Glittertind AS is a niche firm within dispute resolution and litigation. All our lawyers work with commercial dispute resolution on a daily basis, including negotiations, mediation (both in and outside of the courts), and litigation before the ordinary courts and through arbitration.

Several of our lawyers are admitted to the Norwegian Supreme Court. We also have lawyers with experience as judges, both as judges in the ordinary courts and as frequently appointed judges in arbitral panels. We litigate matters on behalf of Norwegian and foreign clients within most legal fields, with top competence on:

  • Company law related disputes (i.a. dissolution of companies and disputes related to sale and purchase of Companies, minority shareholders' rights, redemption of shares and shareholder disputes)
  • Competition
  • Construction
  • Contracts
  • Maritime and transport
  • Professional liability (i.a. auditors, lawyers and financial advisors)
  • Public administration (incl. constitutional matters)
  • Real estate (i.a. sale, purchase and tenancy agreements, matters related to the Norwegian Planning and Building Act and the Norwegian Private Builders Act, appraisement matters and development projects)
  • Tort and insurance


We always seek to reach the best and most profitable solution for our clients. Nevertheless, we are always prepared to try the case before the courts should it prove inevitable.
