Hi, How may I help you?

Our history

Magnus Legal was founded in 2005, as part of the Visma group, with an aim to complement Visma’s accounting and HR services by offering high quality legal advice with a focus on tax, VAT and adjacent legal areas.

From the inception in Bergen, we have grown rapidly and now have offices in Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger and Trondheim. We assist customers from several different countries, and we offer legal expertise within a variety of business law areas.


In 2017 Visma Advokater changed name to Magnus Legal, as a result of the sale of the BPO division from Visma in 2016. The accounting and HR companies changed their names to Azets. To date, Magnus Legal and Azets continue their close cooperation.

Why should you use Magnus legal as an advisor when doing business in Norway?

We believe that “satisfied customers” is the best business strategy of all. We call it delivery culture and it’s all about cooperation and hard work to provide the best advice, at the right time to the agreed price.

Our customers value:

  • fast responses
  • the possibility to have only one contact person
  • that we cover all their needs when doing business in Norway
  • that we are much more flexible and less bureaucratic than our four main competitors

We measure our customer satisfaction rate, and are happy to see that over 90% of the respondents claim that it is highly likely that they would recommend Magnus Legal as a service provider to companies doing business in Norway.
