Our consultancy business is subject to ethical regulations such as rules regarding the code of ethics for lawyers. All of our lawyers are members of the Norwegian Bar Association.
The purpose behind the rules regarding the code of ethics for lawyers is to ensure that a law firm is operated in accordance with ethical principles that are a foundation for a lawyer's work in every civilized society.
Clients may give their lawyer information that the lawyer is obligated not to share further. A lawyer’s duty to handle information confidentially is necessary to maintain trust towards the client and is therefore a fundamental and superior right and duty for a lawyer. A lawyer has an obligation to further the client’s best interests.
The rules regarding the code of ethics for lawyers are enforced through the disciplinary committee which is a part of the Norwegian Bar Association. A complaint concerning a lawyer's breach of the code of ethics for lawyers can be proposed before the Norwegian Bar Associations Disciplinary Committee. Decisions made by the Disciplinary Committee can be complained to the Disciplinary Tribunal.
