M&A projects are frequently extremely complex and extensive. That is why we believe that both breadth and depth are required to be able to handle the big picture. And that is what we have.
Our breadth lies in the fact that almost half of our lawyers work in supporting our clients with mergers and acquisitions. And depth then? Well, we believe that it lies in the fact that thanks to our breadth, we can also offer access to solid competence and in-depth know-how from all our various practice areas. Our breadth and depth are two of our strengths, which we believe distinguish us from many of our competitors and which have also made us into one of Sweden’s most engaged law firms in M&A.
