Dispute resolution

Our primary goal is always to find solutions outside of the court room, but should the need arise, we have comprehensive experience in all manners of legal disputes.


Hjort has a long and proud tradition as one of Norway’s leading litigation firms. We represent both companies and individuals, and each year our lawyers conduct several hundred cases before the district courts, appeal courts and the Supreme Court.

Our business sector- and subject specialists are usually the lawyers who conduct cases before the courts. We believe in a combination of solid specialized knowledge and procedural competence.

As a large law firm with a comprehensive practice both in business law and criminal law, Hjort has a unique position in Norway. We also have considerable experience with large and protracted court cases. In such matters we usually put together a team to cover all relevant subject areas to be able to render the best possible service to our clients.

Hjort is top ranked in Chambers and Legal500 as a leading within dispute resolution, and several of our lawyers hold individual rankings.

"It is recognised as one of the best law firms for litigation."
