For many years, Hjort has helped businesses in the public and private sectors to prevent and manage crisis situations. Norwegian and international regulations are constantly evolving. Hjort has a rare combination of strong expertise in the fields of commercial and administrative law, and a substantial criminal law practice, defending both companies and private individuals. This interdisciplinary expertise strengthens our ability to assess a company’s risk exposure and need for preventive measures. At the same time, it provides a solid foundation for providing advice on matters relating to emergency preparedness and crisis management strategies that address the needs of the market, the workforce, the authorities, the general public and the prosecution service.
Lawyers with commercial business experience
Several of Hjort’s partners have served extensively on company boards and held senior management positions and government appointments. They also have considerable media relations experience. We believe that this gives us a greater understanding of the issues, as well as insight into the way in which legal processes must be combined with the need to maintain business operations and restore confidence in the company – both internally and externally.
