Norwegian public procurement is estimated to more than 400 billion NOK a year. Both Norwegian and foreign bidders may participate in public procurements. We have assisted several foreign entities, and the assistance relates to both the bidding process and to complaints. The last year a remarkable amount of cases were brought up before the Complaint Board (KOFA). The complaining vendors won a huge amount of the cases against municipal authorities. This development shows the increasing importance of monitoring the development within public procurement rules in order to protect the rights of the vendors.
A large amount of foreign construction companies supply Norwegian public and private sector. We have long and broad experience, and are able to offer skills that both contractors, architects, consultants as well as owners in all stages of the construction process find useful. Our clients consist of both on and off shore businesses.
Norway has an impressing technology sector, especially in connection with the oil and gas industry. The information and communications technology industry is alone one of the largest land based business sectors in Norway today. In addition, the private and public health care sector is a big and very important market for technology vendors. We have lawyers who are specialized in Information technology, and who provide services across the whole range from difficult IPR issues to all types of contracts, and license agreements. In addition we litigate a fair amount of large IT cases every year.
