    Carl Bore

    Carl Bore specialises in commercial law and legal procedure in the courts. He is admitted to the Supreme Court of Norway.

    He graduated from the University of Oslo with the highest grades and has wide experience of legal procedure and counselling in commercial law, including contract law, labour law, company law, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), securities trading, maritime and media law, as well as counselling in connection with inquiries and investigations. He also possesses broad experience of contract negotiations and negotiation strategy.

    Within the field of commercial law, Carl is particularly deeply involved in real estate, with the emphasis on construction law, transactions, renting, estate agency business, housing law (owner occupied housing associations, housing cooperatives, etc), as well as planning and building law. He was the author of Gyldendal Rettsdata’s commentary on the Planning and Building Act, and has been both lecturer and examiner at the University of Oslo, the University of Bergen and at the Norwegian School of Management BI.

    With his considerable experience of legal procedure, he has pleaded high-profile media cases in courts at all levels. Between 2003 and 2005 he also gained experience as a deputy judge, as well as experience of Anglo-American and international dispute resolution when working for the Nordic Ship Owners’ Association.

    In the field of media law, Carl has conducted cases especially involving questions of freedom of expression, defamation of character, data protection, right to privacy, and the code of ethics of the press. He has pleaded the three most recent Supreme Court cases involving freedom of expression and defamation and is probably Norway’s leading lawyer in this field. He also advises companies and public figures on how to avoid reputational damage (preventive media guidance) and how, having suffered reputational damage, a claim may be pursued in the courts and in the Norwegian Press Complaints Commission (PFU). He has given talks and appeared in panel discussions arranged by the Association of Norwegian Editors.

    Carl conducts business fluently in three languages: Norwegian, English and Spanish. He handles Spain-related business on a regular basis, advising on real estate purchases, transactions and commercial law cases. He joined Dalan in 2007 and was made a partner in 2010.
