Partner / Member of the Swedish Bar

During my more than 20 years of practice, I have been in charge of a significant number of domestic and cross-border transactions for industrial customers as well as private equity firms and other investors. I have advised customers on corporate law issues including different types of solvent restructuring and reorganisations. I have vast experience in taking a lead role in different types of commercial projects, for example in relation to the supply of industrial equipment and systems. I am advisor to a number of medium-sized and larger companies on the overall legal aspects of their business working closely with management on strategic as well as day-to-day issues. Since practising in Brussels during 1995 and 1996, I have been responsible for the firm’s advice on public procurement and competition law.
