| Firm News

Simonsen Vogt Wiig was shortlisted as the only Nordic law firm by the leading British publication The Lawyer and won in the category "Most innovative technology initiative" for our recent legal tech app.

The app gave legal entities operating in Norway the opportunity to review financial measures implemented by the Norwegian authorities. The jury’s reasoning was as follows:

This firm created a product that was bang up to date. The firm immediately reacted to a defined client need brought by the global pandemic.   

The judges noted the impressing speed of creation. Reacting in a lightening pace, to a new uncertain and constantly evolving event. Truly impressing client service. Well done!

Our Managing Partner Mona Søyland is immensely proud of our team consisting of lawyers Thom Erik Borgen and Kasper Formo Asplin, and Chief Digital Officer Peter van Dam. – This underline and acknowledge our digital and technological initiatives, she says.

Simonsen Vogt Wiig was also shortlisted in the category “Law firm of the year: The Nordics” together with Advokatfirmaet Thommessen, Bech-Bruun, Dittmar & Indrenius, Krogerus and Wiersholm. Huge congrats to Wiersholm for winning in this category.
