Our lawyers have accumulated a wealth of experience from acting for leading international and domestic brand owners in several industries, excelling both in commercial work and in disputes. The practice is well known throughout Europe for its excellent track record with demanding international legal assignments and for working seamlessly between its offices in Sweden and Finland, and together with other leading law firms around the world.

In a fast-moving sector where deadlines are tight (answers are often needed the same or next day) our broad experience, knowledge and global contacts enable us to resolve issues quickly across a number of jurisdictions. This speed of response is something that our clients particularly value. We have represented clients, for example, in cases related to new product or service launches and related marketing and promotion campaigns.

The mind-set of our lawyers is to render constructive, pragmatic and proactive advice. We always strive to find a solution, and we pride ourselves in truly understanding the business and industry of the companies we work with as well as their drivers.
“There is a rare degree of business understanding throughout the firm. The lawyers are exceptionally responsive and experienced, and pleasant to deal with.”
