Norwegian boutique Kyllingstad Kleveland has merged with Selmer.

The merged firm will operate as Selmer and have offices in Oslo and Stavanger. The company will have 190 employees with 45 of these associated with the firm's energy practice which most former Kyllingstad Kleveland employees are now part of. After the merger, the firm will have 55 partners.

Kyllingstad Kleveland was founded in 2007 and specialised in the oil and gas and shipping sectors. It had offices in Oslo and Stavanger. The firm's clients included oil and gas companies, oilfield service firms and marine companies.

The changes follow Schjødt's recent merger with another oil and gas boutique, Michelet & Co, earlier this month.
