General Arbitration Experience

Thomas Nordby is admitted to the Supreme Court and litigates regularly before Norwegian courts. He has litigated a large number of cases before the EU Court and the EFTA Court.

Thomas is an arbitrator in national and international arbitrations, ad hoc as well as institutional. He is a member of the IBA litigation Committee and highly engaged in international dispute resolution. He is in the Board of Directors of The Arbitration and Dispute Resolution Institute of the Oslo Chamber of Commerce (OCC). Thomas is also leading the Commercial Arbitration JUC network and is a member of The Danish Arbitration Association.

Out of court he spends an increasing amount of time on investigations, compliance and governance matters as well as competition enquiries and challenges. The kind of scrutiny that is applied in the context of court proceedings is detailed and extensive; and often internal investigations require the same approach to be effective. As a litigator, Thomas has the experience to anticipate the issues and advises clients on a range of governance topics.
