About us

Where it all started

Inclusive, up-to-date and dedicated. That's where we in AGP want to be every day. Both clients and employees should look forward to entering the door of our premises. We believe that when we are happy at work, we deliver the highest quality.

On 1 January 2020 we opened the doors of AGP Advokater. By 2020, we had completed 200 small and large assignments/transactions and grown from 4 to 15 employees.

The founders; Nils Olav Aarseth, Gard A. Skogstrøm, Hege Dahl and Lars André Gjerdrum had a clear vision of establishing an agile and progressive law firm in a conservative industry with long traditions. Great experience and specialist expertise within transactions/M&A, capital markets and business law lays the foundation for our area of expertise. Through extensive experience with small, medium, large and international transactions, our lawyers guarantee top quality at all levels.

  • Core transaction competencies – M&A, capital markets and corporate.
  • Small teams make us efficient, adaptable and close to our clients.
  • Technological advancement to ensure smooth processes internally and externally.
  • Community, diversity and equality are a priority.
  • Environmentally conscious and dedicated to our social responsibility to create a green working life.
  • Co-ownership and involvement at all levels for all employees.
  • Work-life balance lays the foundation for a holistic life for our employees.

How we rethink

Our values


We are at the forefront of how we structure ourselves internally and externally, we are technically on the front line and use the most modern interaction platforms.


We are caring and treat our employees as an important member of the "big family." Diversity is a focus area, and we are proud to have an approximately equal proportion of women and men in the office.


We are committed to understanding your needs, delivering of the highest quality, providing maximum service, keeping up to date and not least being nice to work with. We are proud of our great environmental focus and are constantly working on how to create a greener working day, which our membership in the UN Global Compact sets the standard for.

Our vision

We're going to improve the way we work. Different collaboration platforms give us unique opportunities to work as a joint team that ensures close follow-up as well as more efficient and precise deliveries.

We're rethinking how we organize. We are convinced that the best advice comes from a team of employees from different backgrounds and genders. We believe that co-ownership and involvement at all levels will create strong commitment and motivation for our employees to provide the ultimate to you as a client.

We are convinced that the best advice comes from a team of employees of different backgrounds and genders.


We all have a responsibility for our shared future and we will contribute our way. The UN Sustainable Development Goals shall form the starting point for our environmental and social engagement. We are committed lawyers who take climate and sustainability seriously. Every choice we make in the workplace, from the coffee we drink to the means of transport we choose, should be made on the basis of a desire to contribute to a greener everyday life. Our social commitment goes beyond being a lawyer.
