The Public Sector department comprises 21 lawyers. The clients are predominantly government bodies, including ministries, directorates and municipalities.
The department's lawyers make up a dedicated team with high-level expertise in fields of special relevance to the public sector. These fields include procurement law, EU/EEA law, administrative law, civil service law, state aid law and competition law.
Many lawyers in the department have previous professional experience from the Office of the Attorney General, the Office of the City Advocate in Oslo, the ESA, the European Commission and Norwegian government ministries. Several are admitted to appear before the Supreme Court.
Kluge probably provides legal assistance to the public sector on a larger scale than any other Norwegian law firm.
