Guide to Finding Professional Advisors in Norway

Finding the right professionals for your business in Norway can be challenging. Directories with professionals are basically non-existent. In practice, it is up to knowing the right people. If you do not have an existing network in Norway, you will most likely end up finding a lawyer, accountant or advisor by performing a Google search.

NordicHQ strives to provide a better experience for those who want to start up in Norway. But also for Norwegians or others with an existing network that want to try out a new way to find professional service providers.

Our focus is on small and medium-sized enterprises that are planning to start up a business in Norway and existing businesses in search of a new service provider.

Workflows

Processes that require multiple professionals

One of the main issues with finding the right professionals is that they have one particular field of knowledge. Very often you are not just dealing with one legal question or one accounting issue.

A single advisor does not always have an overview of the entire business process in which you as a client are involved. As a client, you often act as a kind of contractor who guides the various professionals to achieve your ultimate goal: successfully establish a new company, your company sold, the acquisition of a company, raising of an investment etc.

NordicHQ transforms those crucial moments in your business' life into clear workflows. We make sure you have access to the right professionals and paperwork at the right time.
