“We are happy to welcome one of Norway’s most experienced and knowledgeable real estate lawyers to our team. Stig has outstanding skills and a position in the real state industry that will strengthen our professional environment and not least our capacity to offer our clients the best assistance in the market”, Managing Partner Morten Goller says.

Stig L. Bech will take up his duties as partner in Wiersholm as from 1 January 2021, after one and a half year as CEO of the listed real estate company Solon Eiendom ASA. He has for many years been Norway’s highest ranked real estate lawyer.

“When I decided to return to the role as a lawyer, it was important to find an environment that could offer a dose of renewal – at the same time as the firm had to be established in the top tier in all practice areas. Wiersholm is such an environment, with credibility through professional achievements and commercial strength over several generations. Wiersholm also has a pronounced focus on real estate, with great people that I already know well. I am grateful that Wiersholm is giving me this opportunity and look forward to going all in from the start of 2021”, Stig L. Bech says.

Tom Rune Lian, partner in Wiersholm and head of the firm’s real estate department, is looking forward to working closely with Stig L. Bech:

“Wiersholm has over time experienced an increase in real estate assignments, and we have several exciting projects coming up where we are looking forward to having Stig on our team. Stig has a unique market knowledge, professional insight and a nose for good solutions that will contribute to creating added value for our clients. With Stig on our team, we will make an even bigger difference.”
