International network

Ræder maintains a significant international practice, representing foreign clients in Norway and Norwegian clients abroad. Cross border transactions and disputes have become frequent, and Norwegian companies, at drastic pace, expand their operations and markets outside Norway. Our corporate and tax groups often assist clients with setting up international group structures and tax planning.

It has become increasingly important for lawyers to be familiar with international standards and laws and legal cultures of other jurisdictions. With a group of lawyers with a diverse international background, Ræder is able to fully understand and handle complex international assignments.

In addition to a substantial number of assignments involving the whole Nordic region, Ræder has experienced an increasing number of assignments with other European countries, North America and Asia.

We have for many years had a particular focus on relations between Norway and the United States. In fact, three of our lawyers, all Norwegian, are also admitted to the New York Bar, having between them more than 15 years of practice and experience with New York City law firms. In addition, many of our lawyers have various international legal experiences, both educational and work. Recently, we have set up an India Group, focusing on Indian – Norwegian matters. We find the Indian market to have a significant potential for Norwegian companies, while also representing a challenging territory due to local laws, cultures and bureaucracy.

We have established relationships with a number of law firms worldwide. We spend time to work with and get to know our colleagues in other countries so that we can offer our clients the best advice and service if there is a need to retain foreign counsel.

To better understand the cultures and international playing fields, we also have an active role in the international chambers of commerce in Norway. One of our partners, Carl Garmann Clausen, serve on the Board of the British Norwegian Chamber of Commerce, and we also have active participation in AmCham (American Chamber of Commerce) as well as the Indian, Finnish and Latvian chambers.
