Welcome to GHGs German Desk
German Desk assists both German and Norwegian speaking clients in all matters within Norwegian and German business law, as well as adjoining areas.
GHG has long-standing connections to, among other things, Germany, Austria and Switzerland, which are important trading partners for Norway. Business success is often contingent on a good understanding of current legal rules, culture and linguistic nuances. Personal contact between the German Desk lawyers and the clients (in the clients' preferred language) provides good opportunities for quick and solution-oriented advice.
We also represent German-speaking clients in cases before the courts and other institutions in Norway.
