About

Provided by BAHR

When it comes to complex, high value commercial litigation and arbitration, BAHR is a first choice. We serve a variety of clients in the full range of commercial disputes, from shareholder and post-M&A litigation, to banking and insolvency disputes, fraud and asset tracing, and insurance disputes. Our real estate and construction litigation expertise is highly sought after, while we are also seeing an increase in professional liability cases.

The group enjoys a strong profile in a number of key niches. These include IP litigation, where we represent many of the world’s leading pharmaceuticals patent originators, and tax litigation, where we enjoy an outstanding record of involvement in ground breaking cases. In line with our strength in the sector, we also have considerable experience in offshore construction, oil services and shipping disputes.

With a number of our team members qualified to appear before the higher courts, we have developed one of the country’s premier appellate practices, and have been involved in a number of the highest profile cases decided by the Norwegian Supreme Court in recent years. We are also skilled in handling international arbitrations before a variety of tribunals, as well as in mediation.

In every dispute we aim to solve our client’s problems as simply and cost effectively as possible. Where this can be done without litigation we try to guide clients towards the best possible solution, fighting their corner tenaciously where it cannot.
