The practice focuses on civil and not criminal cases, and the emotions and complications of the legal cases as well as the heartache and joy of the partners, employees and their families are at the heart this compelling balance of drama and comedy. In season two, senior partners Ben and Lara struggle to balance the demands of their respective roles at the firm with their personal lives, after Hans’ retirement. With even more drama, divorces and unfair dismissals to contend with, Fynskrif season two promises plenty of excitement.

Meet the stylist

Jodi Bowers is the costume supervisor tasked with subtly defining the individual characters and their personalities within the traditionally reserved confines of a corporate establishment. From gradually playing with a muted colour palette and fun designs to accessorising with statement pieces to highlight significant scenes, Jodi succeeds in ensuring each character has a distinctive personal style that is carried through the entire series.
