PROBATE AND ESTATE PLANNING
The family law specialty requires legal expertise and insight into interpersonal relationships. We are committed to our lawyers providing assistance to the parties involved and to finding good solutions in difficult as well as everyday inheritance and family matters. Where good solutions cannot be found, cases are brought before the courts.
Our lawyers regularly give lectures for the Bar Association and various associations and organisations, and they are often brought in in connection with statements to the media. One of our lawyers was voted the best probate and estate planning lawyers in Norway by the magazine Kapital.
One of our lawyers is a permanent trustee at Oslo County Court, and we administer at any given time a number of public estates of varying sizes. We also assist in private probate cases and are frequently hired to act as executors.
We have core competency in international probate and cooperate with foreign law firms that form part of our international network.
We regularly assist with the following:
- gifts and the advancements on inheritance from parents to children
- wills and future authorisation
- private and public probate of the estates of deceased persons
- marriage and civil partnership agreements
- financial settlement following the divorce of spouses or civil partners
- international settlement (upon divorce or death)
- management of the finances of minors
