We are a business law firm with approximately 75 professionals, based in Oslo. We believe that legal advice primarily has value if it can be applied in a business context.
The law firm currently known as Grette was established in 1887 by Attorney Johan Bredal. Few Norwegian lawyers have had a more distinctive and lasting impact on the Norwegian legal profession.
Johan Bredal set up his legal practice in Sandefjord in 1887. In 1894, he moved the firm to Oslo. The firm had a number of well-known lawyers on its payroll already in its first few decades, such as Herman Christiansen, Sigurd Fougner, Ferdinand Schjelderup, Annæus Schjødt, Einar Grette and Oscar Smith.
