The Legal 500
Ro Sommernes is top ranked in two categories in The Legal 500 rankings of 2020.
The Legal 500 recently published its 2020 rankings. Ro Sommernes is, also this year, top ranked and highly recommended, and several of our lawyers are pointed out as particularly competent within their practice areas.
The firm is ranked as Tier 1 (top score) within insolvency and restructuring and is also amongst the best firms (Tier 4) within real estate (transactions). Seven of our lawyers are top ranked within their respective disciplines.
The Legal 500 is an independent, impartial and international ranking agency which annually ranks law firms and lawyers across Europe on the basis of in-depth analysis. The rankings are based on legal skills, professional conduct, client service, commercial vision and business understanding, diligence, efficiency and other qualities which are considered important to clients.
Ro Sommernes has been one of the leading Norwegian law firms within insolvency and restructuring for decades and is well-known for its expertise and vast experience representing both creditors, debtors and mortgagees in corporate recovery cases. Several of the firm’s lawyers are also regularly appointed as bankruptcy administrators, debt settlement managers and investigators by the courts.
Knut Ro and Håvard Wiker are both top ranked and recognized as leading insolvency and restructuring lawyers. Erik Sandtrø and Nils Holger Koefoed are ranked amongst the very best within this discipline too.
The firm’s real estate and transaction departments also receive honourable recognition in the 2020 rankings. Nils Petter Hansson leads the real estate group and testimonials say that he “is a star” and that he has “really good industry knowledge and is one of the few real estate lawyers who really understands numbers.” Henrik Hareide Nilsen heads up the transaction practice, whereas Henrik A. Christensen is considered a key name to note. The latter “is a great deal maker who is very connected in the market.”
We appreciate this recognition and will use it as inspiration for continued hard work.
