Wikborg Rein LLP is the London office of Wikborg Rein Advokatfirma AS, Norway’s premier law firm, and offers English and Norwegian law advice in the shipping and offshore, and banking and finance sectors.
Within these fields, the firm’s work extends from sale and purchase of vessels and offshore units, newbuilding contracts, ship and offshore finance and registration – to more practical operational matters such as charterparties, contracts of affreightment, offshore contracts, employment issues, vessel breakdown and pollution liabilities. A particular strength is the team’s expertise in the Norwegian high-yield bond market.
The firm also has an extensive dispute resolution and marine insurance practice, routinely acting for many of the major international marine insurance companies and handling matters such as cargo risks, collision, salvage, wreck removal and total losses, as well as disputes under FD&D cover.
