Norwegian law firm SANDS has appointed Oddbjørn Slinning head of its shipping, energy, and offshore practice as managing partner.

Slinning said he looked forward to building on the work done at the firm over the last five years growing on the back of the diversification of the Norwegian economy.

"Over the last ten years, we have seen Norway become an increasingly attractive destination for inbound capital and mergers and acquisitions. Shipping and oil and gas have a critical been part of this, and we believe this work will grow to encompass renewables as more energy companies' diversity. Biotech, R&D, renewables, and property have also seen enormous interest from overseas investors,” he said. 

"We now have a good platform for further development of the firm. I have clear ambitions for the company's future and look forward to putting my own imprint on the journey ahead,"

SANDS has offices in Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Stavanger, Ålesund, Tromsø, and Tønsberg.
