About us

Brækhus specializes in Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) and is a modern, highly-skilled alternative to the largest law firms. We started in 1929 with commercial law and property and we have built up our expertise in these fields decade by decade. With our long history, we are not deterred by big challenges. We have been there before and found effective solutions by being proficient, creative and innovative.

We have great respect for entrepreneurs of the past, present and future and are motivated by working with our clients to create visible results.  We do this best when we are engaged early in the decision-making process. Our business and pricing models are structured accordingly.

In Brækhus, we enjoy our work and work together as a team. The team is made up of first-class people with a range of different skills and together they create enthusiasm and synergy. We call this the Brækhus spirit – job satisfaction and teamwork, combined with uncompromisingly high professional standards.

As a client of Brækhus, we encourage you to join us in this spirit and we want this enthusiasm to spread to those whom we meet at our clients and business partners, so that we can form the durable relationships that create added value for our clients. 

Brækhus Eiendom and BD VAT and Tax Services

In addition to the legal practice, Brækhus has long experience in property management and accounting services. In order to achieve best possible focus in the legal practice, we have divided these services into specialised companies:

  • Brækhus Eiendom AS is a major player in property management in Norway. The company is a certified public accountancy enterprise and acts as business manager for around 200 property companies, with approximately 10,000 units, and a number of business properties. Brækhus Eiendom manages business property, rental apartments, housing cooperatives, condominiums and limited liability housing cooperatives.
  • BD VAT and Tax Services AS is a bookkeeping agency that supports foreign enterprises with tax and VAT matters when operating in Norway.

The combination of full-service law firm, property management and accounting services ensures that our lawyers in the property and tax departments have cutting-edge expertise in legal and market-related issues and can draw on the knowledge of colleagues with accounting and property skills, to deliver seamless services to clients.

Social responsibility

In Brækhus, we aim to take social responsibility seriously and we run our business in the most sustainable way possible.  As part of this our head office is Eco-lighthouse certified.  You can read more about the Eco-lighthouse Foundation here.

Every year we support several humanitarian projects and in 2013 we initiated a special project where we are paying for the legal education of a Zambian girl called Natasha. We started this project in response to the wishes of our enthusiastic employees. Several of our lawyers have also taken part in arranging a football camp in Lusaka in recent years.
