Bronze - Firms: litigation and transactions
Arntzen de Besche’s technology and innovation group has been in fine fettle of late: the commercially savvy guidance it provides to innovators in the oil and gas, life sciences and IT industries proves vital in helping companies to grow their market share. Its transactional capabilities are especially noteworthy, as illustrated by Andreas Nordby’s recent role assisting Shearwater Geoservices with the establishment of a new streamer technology joint venture. Counsellor to the stars, Nordby is the deputy chair of the dispute resolution committee at the Norwegian Directorate of Health; his deep playbook ensures that he has all the moves to triumph in make-or-break situations. Fellow department co-captain Tommy Dahlen is “a valuable adviser, due to his understanding of technology and ability to simplify complex processes to drive momentum and secure a successful outcome. He excels at devising strategies that ultimately lead to creative solutions that meet clients’ commercial needs. Tommy has a positive attitude and a customer-oriented approach, and delivers results swiftly and efficiently”.
