SustainabilityEthics and regulatory compliance

Ethics and regulatory compliance are embodied within our core value “quality” and are of great importance, both in our day-to-day tasks, as well as in the long-term development of the firm and our legal advice. Since we operate in several countries, we must ensure that our operations are conducted in accordance with the laws and regulations applicable in those countries. In addition, we are continuously making strategic and ethical judgements beyond these minimum requirements to achieve the best quality possible. One example of this is that we were the first law firm in the Nordic region to establish a special department for quality and risk management when we did so in 2005.
