Achilles partners with leading law firm Schjødt

15 Apr 2020

Achilles partners with leading law firm Schjødt to offer customers free initial consultation on new COVID-19 legislation.

Achilles Information today announces a partnership with Schjødt, a leading Scandinavian full service business law firm, to offer Achilles members legal assistance and support. New legal and commercial measures put in place as a result of Covid-19 have had significant impact on the implementation of acquisitions and contracts and with experience across different sectors, the experts at Schjødt are well placed to advise Achilles customers.

The partnership means that Achilles customers can meet with representatives from Schjødt for 15-30 minutes’ free discussion.  If the issues raised require further follow-up, the team at Schjødt will be able to progress this and will be offering favourable rates.

Schjødt is one of Norway’s top tier law firms and this new service will be offered from offices all over Norway, and Stockholm, enabling Achilles customers across the Nordics to benefit.  The initial appointments will be conducted via video link or phone.

Partner at Advokatfirmaet Schjødt, Thomas Nordby, commented:

“Coronavirus and the resulting necessary government measures are having a major impact on the implementation of upcoming and ongoing acquisitions, and perhaps in particular the implementation of existing contracts entered into after tender competition. Our experience is that both clients and suppliers underestimate the opportunities that the procurement legislation provide in situations like this, however our expertise across different industries and sectors means we can provide Achilles customers with excellent legal and commercial advice during these uncertain times. We have worked with Achilles before and I’m delighted we are able to collaborate once again.”

Halvard Homme, Head of Sector – Utilities, Achilles Information commented:

“After the great success of our collaboration last September at AchillesLive in Oslo, we know that Achilles customers have a huge appetite for the expertise and advice of the team at Schjødt.  I am delighted that during these difficult and challenging times we are able to work together to offer our customers support to navigate through the impact of changing legislation and an evolving situation.”
