In Norway we are leaders in specialist insurance and risk management services to the marine and energy sectors.

Who we are

Gallagher Norway is one of the largest marine and energy insurance broker teams in Scandinavia, and the result of two highly-regarded and specialist brokers joining forces — Bergvall Marine and Parisco. We are a 30+ strong team of brokers, claims specialists and supporting staff with extensive knowledge and experience in our sector and a reputation for a client-first approach.

Our 'one-team' solution enables us to provide strategy, broking and marketing, claims handling, and contract reviews — delivering a seamless service for our clients. We are known for our unwavering commitment to ethics and integrity just as much as our industry expertise.

Our values are core to our culture. Passionate service, strategic innovation, and ethical behavior form the basis of how we do business — The Gallagher Way. All with one purpose: To help you face your future with confidence.

Founded by Arthur J. Gallagher in Chicago in 1927, Gallagher has grown to be one of the leading insurance brokerages, risk management, and HR & benefits consulting companies in the world. With significant reach internationally, our organization employs over 52,000 people and our global network provides services in more than 130 countries.

Building on our legacy

The story of Gallagher Norway goes back to 1894, when the grandfather of Bjørn Bergvall established Arvid Bergvall AS in Norway. Family-owned and run for over a century, the company went through several management changes, eventually becoming part of Gallagher in 2013. Like Bergvall, Gallagher was (and still is) a third-generation family-owned company with customer service at its heart.

In 2021, wishing to further expand its marine and energy business in Norway, Gallagher acquired Parisco AS. Like Bergvall, Parisco was made up of a dedicated team of specialists who recognized the importance of strong customer relationships. Formed from a team at one of the world's largest insurance brokers, we built a small but mighty business that quickly became a trusted name in Norway's offshore energy sector.

Bergvall, Parisco and Gallagher have always shared common values in terms of how we do business — putting the customer first in every decision and circumstance. As Gallagher Norway moves forward, we are committed to building on this incredible legacy as we continue to support our clients in the marine and energy space.
