Partner Erik Thyness to become Supreme Court justice

After 23 years in Wiersholm, Erik Thyness now takes up one of Norway's most prestigious posts.

All at Wiersholm are extremely proud that partner Erik Thyness has been nominated as the no. 1 candidate out of all the strong contenders for the two vacancies for Supreme Court justice.

Mr. Thyness has been a partner in Wiersholm since 1996 and was managing partner from 2006 to 2012. He has also played a crucial part in building Wiersholm as it exists today. Mr. Thyness is one of Norway's foremost M&A lawyers and has advised on a large number of the most important transactions from the '90s until today.

"We will miss Erik and his exceptional insight and expertise. The Supreme Court could not have chosen anyone more apt and suited for the job," says managing partner Morten Goller.

Mr. Thyness is both pleased and proud to be nominated. "A post as Supreme Court justice will provide me with unique professional challenges and I am eager to get started. At the same time, I will miss Wiersholm – I have spent many good years in what is undoubtedly Norway's best law firm and with the best colleagues a man could wish for," Erik concludes.
