Fisheries and Aquaculture Law

The fishery and aquaculture industry in Norway is the second largest value creator after the petroleum industry.

The industry carries a substantial social and environmental responsibility, and is therefore the subject of extensive regulation of everything from ownership to the operation of the activities. In addition, this industry has the same need for general legal advice as other industries.

Our team within fisheries and aquaculture consists of lawyers who have for decades provided legal assistance to everything from listed companies to small and large family businesses and locally owned activities in both sea and land based fisheries and aquaculture along the entire coast.

The team and the firm as a total have the expertise and experience required to provide legal and advisory assistance in regulatory matters, general business issues and industry-specific topics. In addition, we offer the specialized expertise held by other professional groups in our law firm.

Altogether, we provide high quality and rapid assistance to all legal challenges that the enterprises engaged in the industry will experience. Members of the group also have extensive experience in everything from arbitration to litigation and dealing with governmental sanctions, up to the Supreme Court.
