Secretary

Heitmann is specialised within employment law through a focus on this area from his work from 1999 up until today. His experience includes two years working in the Ministry of Labour before he entered into general employment law practice as an attorney.

His clientele mainly consists of business participants. A key part of his work is to provide strategic and legal assistance in change processes. Continuous counselling and negotiations are also significant in this field, as the focus is normally on finding efficient solutions in conflict situations. During the last few years, forensic services have also become a larger part of his practice.

Henning regularly litigates before the courts in cases where agreement solutions have not been achieved.

He is Aftenposten’s expert on employment law and often provides professional comments relating to labour legislation issues in national media. Aftenposten refers to Henning as “one of Norway’s best employment law attorneys”.

He regularly lectures on employment law before leaders and HR consultants in the private sector. Heitmann also has extensive experience with board work throughout several years in various industries.
