Employment and Corporate Governance

Hjort assists with dispute resolution and advises on all areas of employment law, including those relating to corporate governance. Over many years, we have gained extensive experience from numerous business sectors and types of operation, and have one of Norway's largest employment law practices.


Since a company’s human resources form an important part of its overall capital base, managing these is a key success factor for most enterprises.

We can help you handle the various issues that can arise at any stage in the employment relationship, in connection with its establishment, day-to-day HR and operational issues, and its termination. Thanks to our extensive experience of most types of cases, we can offer advice, assist in negotiations and, if necessary, represent you in court.

We advise on matters relating to both individual and collective employment law.

We are retained by both employers and employees, which gives us broad insight and invaluable experience. The practice is organised to provide commercially sound and effective advice to our clients, and operates with a relatively large number of partners in the first line.

Hjort has been helping to resolve employment disputes for many years, and our employment law attorneys have extensive experience of litigating before district courts, courts of appeal and the Supreme Court. This experience of litigation is also of great value in our day-to-day advisory service. Hjort’s Employment Law Practice is top ranked by the international rating companies Legal500 and Chambers Europe.

"The firm is interested in understanding our business and for larger issues it responds quickly. It helps us focus on solutions rather than conflict."

"We trust its advice. The firm has good experience and practical knowledge, and is very hands-on, digging into topics and presenting things in a good way."
