Roschier adds muscle to its Finance & Restructuring team in Stockholm

The team is rejoined by Niklas Eriksson who is appointed Partner; Counsel Carl Brodén is appointed Senior Advisor.

We are strengthening our Nordic offering in the area of finance and restructuring as a response to our clients’ growing demand for innovative solutions and more specialized advice. The appointments of Niklas Eriksson to Partner and Carl Brodén to Senior Advisor will ensure continuity and strengthen the capabilities of our market-leading Finance & Restructuring practice in serving the entire finance industry in high-end transactions.

Niklas Eriksson has some 10 years of experience in working in the legal industry, including five years as a Senior Associate in our Finance & Restructuring team in Stockholm. He has broad experience in a wide range of finance-related matters, with a particular focus on high yield bonds and leveraged finance. His expertise also covers securitizations, fund financings, as well as various investment grade financings and project financings, both borrower and lender side.

Carl Brodén has been with Roschier since 2015. He has some 20 years of experience in advising on various complex finance-related matters, with a particular focus on restructuring and insolvency as well as structured finance. Prior to joining Roschier, Carl held the position as Head of Trustee Services at CorpNordic.

“There continues to be a growing interest among companies to diversify their financing and explore new financial instruments, and our strategy is to drive development in the market and be the first choice for innovative and complex advice,” says Partner Johan Häger, who heads Roschier’s Finance & Restructuring practice in Sweden. “Niklas’ versatile experience of working with arrangers and lenders within the high yield bonds and leveraged finance segments, in combination with Carl’s robust expertise, further deepens our capabilities to provide superior strategic advice to our clients on the entire spectrum of finance-related matters. I look forward to developing our practice together with both of them,” he adds.

“Our cross-border Finance & Restructuring practice has an excellent track record of working on the most sophisticated financing transactions in the market. By tradition, this area is one of our core practice areas, and I am delighted to see the team grow and broaden its offering for the benefit of the firm’s clients,” comments Roschier’s Managing Partner Mikko Manner.

Roschier’s Finance & Restructuring team in Stockholm is growing strongly at the moment. The team will welcome four new Associates in the coming months, and aims to grow further during the spring.
