    Responsible business

    Over the last 100 years, Wikborg Rein has assisted Norwegian and foreign businesses with corporate law issues. In recent years, we have witnessed significant developments with regards to the expectations that businesses are met with. Increasingly, businesses are expected to respect human rights, environmental standards and the fight against corruption.

    Equality and Diversity

    The corporate legal industry has traditionally been conservative and not adequately able to mirror the diversity that exists in the society around us. A leading law firm such as Wikborg Rein make a difference with regards to this, and we will therefore work to drive the industry in the right direction.
