A legal issue with an international dimension requires in-depth knowledge about rules and requirements that are not relevant to issues with only the national dimension. These can be and often are: which country's rule apply; where litigation may, does, or has to take place; how the language dimension can be addressed with as little costs as possible.

Enforcing of foreign judgements: Foreign judgments may be enforced in Norway either by Norwegian law or by the Lugano convention. This depends on the country of origin of the judgement. Please enquire.
Service of documents: Assistance with service of documents can be provided where allowed by Norwegian law and the relevant HCCH conventions. US lawyers may request service in Norway direct without having to go via the relevant court and the US Department of Justice, and assistance can be provided in this regard in order to facilitate and speed up the process.
