Dispute Resolution

Partner / Member of the Swedish Bar

During my first years in the Skanska Group, my main responsibility was to give legal advice to the company´s operations in Germany and England. I have also assisted five regions in Skanska Sweden AB during a ten-year period with advice on the company's construction and development activities. I participated inter alia in procurement (private and public), company formation, property acquisitions, lettings and preparation of construction contracts. I have extensive experience of process and dispute resolution.

I worked with Group matters for the Trelleborg Group, establishing policies, manuals and procedures, and was responsible for coordinating the Group's company formalities. During the time I was employed, Trelleborg was focused on implementing a corporate compliance programme and part of my responsibilities was to implement the guidelines of the Group.

In addition to the advisory business, I have extensive experience in establishing contract templates and other standardised tools designed to support. I also hold courses in construction and consulting law as well as compliance issues.

I lived and worked in England during the time of one of the country´s first PFI projects for Bridgend prison. I was “on loan” for two years to Sundlink, one of Skanska’s part-owned trading companies responsible for the construction of the Öresund Bridge. The tasks included the establishment of contracts with subcontractors and suppliers. I have experience in contract negotiations for BoO1, Entré Malmo, Court of Appeal for Southern Sweden and several hospital and road projects as well as real estate sales, such as the Hansa Company, Balzar City and Caroli City to name a few.

I have experience in internal and external directorships in various industries and have been a board member of Myresjöhus AB and Rörvik Timber AB (publ). I also have extensive experience in litigation and dispute resolution.

At Moll Wendén, I am involved in several major construction projects and assist customers in construction law issues and disputes.
