Norwegian IT entrepreneur and former lawyer. Qualified lawyer (LL.M) at UiO and 3-year Art Director from Westerdals. In 2004, Erling founded the digital marketing agency Omega Media. One of the products the company developed was the former Norwegian online community Biip.no, which was launched in 2005. In 2008, Omega Media and Biip.no were sold to TV2 and Egmont for $6.9million. Following the sale, Erling received a tax claim which ran into hundreds of thousands of dollars, which inspired him to start studying law. Erling bought back Omega Media towards the end of 2012, and completed his studies on a part-time basis alongside a full-time job. He eventually won the tax case against the state. Erling then worked as a lawyer until 2019, when he left the legal profession to found The Lawyer Guide.
