He was a member of the party Nasjonal Samling before the Second World War, and worked as an attorney in Lillehammer. In 1940 he participated for Norway in battles near Høytorp Fort. However, during the subsequent occupation of Norway by Nazi Germany a career path opened for him. In February 1941 he was appointed as Norwegian Director of Public Prosecutions to replace Haakon Sund who had been fired for anti-German sentiments.
