The firm: Selmer was founded in 1985. The firm quickly became an important challenger to the establishment. While other law firms had existed for over a hundred years, Selmer could offer fresh thinking and a new perspective.

Today Selmer is one of Norway’s leading legal practices with 190 employees. Throughout the firm’s short history, it has strived to work in innovative ways, constantly among the first to adopt new ideas. One of these is a company structure that includes both accountants and financial analysts, unique in the Norwegian legal industry, enabling the firm to give interdisciplinary advice that other firms cannot. In January 2019, Selmer announced its merger with Kyllingstad Kleveland, one of the leading law firms in Norway within oil, offshore and shipping industries. The new department, Selmer Energy, unites two of Norway's leading legal specialist groups within oil and gas, oil services, shipping and renewable energy to Norway's largest energy practice.

Selmer is committed to continuing its tradition of seeing things in a new light. For this reason, it will keep on challenging its clients, competitors and itself. The legal business is still traditional - Selmer offers a new perspective.
