Work at Visma

Meet our employees – This is Lars

Name: Lars M. Ottersen

Nationality: Norwegian

Job: Lawyer Oslo office in Visma Advokater AS

What is your educational background?
I am a lawyer educated at the University of Bergen, and have also studied engineering at NTNU in Trondheim.

What are you working at now?
I am currently working on different cases within labour law. Due the fall in oil prices, I spend a lot of time assisting clients tied to the offshore industry with managing redundancy processes and reorganization. In addition, I assist clients with preparing for the new privacy legislation brought by the EU.

How is it to work at Visma?
Visma is an ideal place to work, especially if you are young and eager to learn. I think the reason for this is the way we are organized. The threshold for seeking advice and learning from your superiors is low, and there is no such thing as a stupid question. As long as you don’t ask the same question every time. 

What is your favorite activity outside work?
My favorite activity outside work is downhill skiing. I have made my peace with the fact that my skills within labour and privacy law are financing this activity, unfortunately it’s not the other way around…
