Lawyer Ingjald Økland started his own law firm in Strømmen in 1973. Advokatfirmaet Økland & Co DA was established in its current form on 1 February 1982, when Ingjald Økland, Sigmund Øien and Morten Huser decided to merge their businesses.
Over the last ten years the company has experienced substantial growth and now has 50 employees. Of these, 39 are lawyers and associates. Throughout this time, we have constantly developed in line with the philosophy, integrity and service that our founders stood for: professional breadth and legal strength combined with local knowledge, a professional approach and solution orientation. Our company is predominantly a corporate law firm with a principal focus on real estate/construction, corporate law, labour law/contract law and administration in bankruptcy. Our lawyers also have extensive experience within personal law, including compensation, custody of children, child protection and assistance.
We have gained considerable trust both within and outside of the legal system thanks to the company’s long tradition and stability. Our excellent reputation and extensive experience enable us to solve many types of assignments and create reassurance for clients that seek our assistance.
Our head office is centrally located in Lillestrøm and we also have branches in Oslo, Sørumsand and Eidsvoll. Our lawyers undertake assignments from the entire country for both private and public sector clients. Advokatfirmaet Økland & Co DA is part of International Lawyers Network (ILN), an international network of law firms with specialist expertise in corporate law.
At Advokatfirmaet Økland & Co DA, we are committed to offering our services at competitive prices. The fee will predominantly be determined by the time spent, but may also vary depending on the nature and complexity of the assignment. In clear and simple cases, we will, by prior agreement, be able to provide a fixed price in advance.
Advokatfirmaet Økland & Co DA adheres to the Norwegian Bar Association’s “Rules for good legal practice” and, in consumer matters, also the Norwegian Competition Authority’s “Regulations concerning price information for services”. This means that the client, in connection with the commencement of the assignment, will be informed of the hourly rates that apply, how the fee is calculated, as well as information about our invoicing procedures. An agreement can also be entered into concerning ongoing information about accrued costs.
