Shared first place in Prospera
Prospera Law Firm Review Norway 2020 has now been published and together with Thommessen we share first place in the survey.
Being ranked number 1 is a recognition we appreciate and which motivates us to keep improving.
– We are very pleased with this year's results and that the clients have ranked us as number 1 together with Thommessen. As far as we know, this is the first time two companies share first place, and Thommessen is a strong competitor that pushes us to continuous renewal and improvement. It's gratifying to share first place with them. There are many law firm rankings, but Prospera stands out because it gives us the client's feedback and is therefore among them we place the most emphasis on, says Managing Partner, Finn Bjørnstad.
Finn continues: – The survey shows that we have progression in many areas, in addition to giving us feedback on where we can improve further. I am especially pleased to see that we are top-ranked in areas such as client understanding, project implementation and that we are perceived as proactive supporters in our clients' daily activities.
Wikborg Rein has in recent years been through a modernization process, and we see that this now gives results and that we come out better on rankings such as the one now carried out by Prospera. As part of this, we have focused less on individual assignments and more on close partnerships with our clients. Such close and long-term relationships give clients good knowledge of the firm and our expertise, which is reflected in the Prospera survey.
We do not take this number 1 position with Thommessen for granted. The competition is tough, and the ability to satisfy the clients' needs, both today and in the future, requires flexibility and continuous improvement and further development of our business, Finn concludes.
Prospera is a market survey that is conducted annually with more than 300 Norwegian companies that use significant amounts on legal services. The interviews were conducted in the period 26 February – 11 May 2020.
