Overview

BAHR’s services span the entire field of employment law, including both one-off commercial transactions and restructurings, and advice on the sort of ongoing labour law challenges that all businesses face. Our approach emphasises respect for everyone involved and we constantly strive to find effective solutions based on commercial understanding and a commitment to innovation.

While we don’t aim to be all things to all people, BAHR’s skilled employment team offers a first class service in a number of key areas. One of these is the field of pensions and incentives, where our experience of preparing custom-made compensation and incentive schemes and of tackling the many complex challenges that can arise in connection with pension schemes is second to none. This reflects the fact that BAHR houses the country’s premier asset management and financial regulatory team.

Similarly, as one of Norway’s leading corporate M&A powerhouses, we offer premier league experience of M&A-related employment law work, often coordinating due diligence and restructuring projects across multiple jurisdictions. This top-tier position in the corporate world is also reflected in our client base, which includes many of the top employers in Norway, including major companies from the banking and finance, private equity, energy and offshore, retail, real estate, transport and technology sectors. We also enjoy the unusual distinction of acting for the three leading employers’ federations.
