Our Story

We started Shifter because we saw the need to highlight Norwegian startups, and the shift traditional and established companies need to make to be able to survive in the digital age.

Last year, we have launched Future Lawyer  because the law industry is heading towards a great change. Some see this as a threat, but we see this as an opportunity. 

This year we are continuing Future Lawyer with a strong focus on innovation in the legal services.

We believe a true entrepreneurial mindset is the right way to approach the new changes, and we also believe you should be part of the change, instead of letting change dictate  your business.

Come, join us, and be a part of "Future Lawyer 2018"
