Selmer is considered a leading law firm within restructuring and insolvency. We assist both domestic and international companies with financial restructuring and legal issues related to insolvency. Our advisors handle liquidations and debt negotiations that are extremely complex and comprehensive.

Our advisors have significant experience dealing with the challenges that a company, the management, owners and lenders/creditors face when a company is experiencing financial difficulties. We perform a due diligence review and a situation and action analysis of the company and also assist with a review of collateral, equity and loan transactions, with negotiations and dispute resolution and if need be with the petition for winding-up.

Selmer was founded in 1985. We quickly became an important challenger to the establishment. While other law firms had existed for over a hundred years, we could offer fresh thinking and a new perspective. One of these is a company structure that includes both accountants and economists, unique in the Norwegian legal industry, enabling us to give interdisciplinary advice that other firms cannot.

Selmer provides business law advice accompanied by financial expertise. Selmer is one of the largest and most recognized corporate law firms in Norway. We have a large network within the private and public sector, and a considerable share of our business is internationally oriented.


Jon Skjørshammer has broad expertise with considerable experience in financial restructuring, liquidation and bankruptcy administration. He is “not only a brilliant lawyer and strategist but also a great team leader. He’s very intelligent, creative and hard-working.”
