We are 100 years

In 1923, Erling Wikborg, a renowned maritime lawyer, placed a sign on the door of his new office located in Rådhusgaten in Oslo. 24 years later, Alex Rein joined as a partner in the firm. While the focus used to be on these two individuals, today the emphasis is on the collective strength, diversity, and scope of the entire firm. In 2023, we gather under the shared slogan of "100 Years Young".
