New tax lawyers in Oslo


We are very pleased to welcome Harald Hauge and Jarle Schelander to Wikborg Rein. They both started this week as a partner and Specialist Counsel, respectively, in our tax department.

Harald Hauge is a lawyer with a PhD in tax law and has extensive experience as a tax advisor for businesses and family offices. He is rated as one of the country's leading tax lawyers by Chambers and has been a partner at Harboe & Co., which is now being dissolved.

"My impression of Wikborg Rein's tax practice and potential so far is very positive. Our ambition is to contribute to the development of a dedicated, enthusiastic and visible tax department," says Hauge, who started his legal career with us working as an associate and lawyer between 2000 and 2007.

A comeback

"It's fantastic to see how professionalized things have become over the years," says Hauge.

Jarle Schelander, who were a partner in Harboe & Co. is known as a highly skilled tax lawyer with particular insight in the "hot" ground rent regimes (renewable energy and sea farming), is also looking forward to a new chapter at Wikborg Rein.

"I both believe and hope that we can assist the firm in taking further steps in taxation and that we can also further develop ourselves as lawyers by joining a larger business law firm," says Schelander.

– Significant growth

Ole Henrik Wille is very pleased with the two new lawyers on board.

"We have a strong tax team consisting of nine lawyers who assist our clients with all forms of tax advice. We are experiencing significant growth in both transactions and tax-related disputes and therefore see a need to further strengthen our tax practice. We are doing this now with Harald and Jarle, who are two of the country's leading tax lawyers. I am confident that they both will contribute to recruiting even more tax talents to Wikborg Rein," he says.
