We have in-depth expertise in the comprehensive regulations with which the aquaculture industry must comply. Our competencies cover all phases relevant to aquaculture: licence allocation, the operational phase, and business closure. Our experience includes working on legal issues relating to: lice, escapes, development licences, internal controls, dormant sites, allocation of aquaculture licences, etc.
Our attorneys in this field have also litigated a number of cases for this industry before the courts. We have represented Eide Fjordbruk AS and Fyllingsnes Fisk AS through three rounds of court proceedings and negotiations until the allocation of four new licences, which is regarded as a historic result in recent times.
We have further assisted in a number of transactions, such as company acquisitions. On certain cases, we work closely with our transaction services team. We also have extensive experience in assisting on contracts associated with the daily operations of an aquaculture company.
Our attorneys working in this area have extensive industry knowledge and a great interest in the field. We are committed to keeping ourselves abreast of the constant changes taking place in this industry, in terms of both the legislation and the development of the industry.
