Public procurement

A team devoted to public procurement, always at hand to help and give you advice. 

Our team is one of the strongest in its field in Norway, with lawyers including the former Chair of the Norwegian Complaints Board for Public Procurement (KOFA), holder of the position for nine years, and a former Public Procurement Manager with the Attorney General of Civil Affairs.

Our team of lawyers are actively engaged in information sharing on both public and private arenas and share valuable insight through newsletters and seminars. 

The dedicated and experienced personnel has built a broad range of services by working with key suppliers to the public sector and through framework agreements with clients such as the Norwegian National Rail Administration, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, Avinor AS, the Norwegian Agricultural Authority, the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund and Sporveien Oslo AS. 

Act fast when needed and draw in expert opinions on matters that we think we already know the answer to – thus granting us the possibility to revise our own perspectives and adjust accordingly.
