A Note From Vigdis

After seven years of working at a top law firm and Fortune 100 companies in New York City, I decided to head west to Portland. After co-founding a start up, I was inspired to establish my own law firm where I would have the opportunity to build real relationships with my clients, a deeper understanding and connection to their business and bring my high-end training to the everyday business owner. I’m licensed in NY and OR, am a dual American and Norwegian citizen and traditional Viking values of honesty, loyalty and discipline are guiding principles in all aspects of my life – hence the name of this firm. I adore living in the Northwest and can be found chasing powder all winter long and exploring the great outdoors in warmer weather.
