Mannheimer Swartling named law firm of the year and lawyers top rankings

Mannheimer Swartling has once again been named “Clients’ Choice” in the annual client survey “Klientbarometern”. This is the eighth consecutive year that the firm has been selected “Clients’ Choice” in business law. Biörn Riese was named “Lawyer of the Year”; and, with André Andersson placing among the top-three and Olle Flygt placing among the top-ten, Mannheimer Swartling has the most lawyers receiving recognition in this category.

Jan Dernestam, Managing Partner at Mannheimer Swartling:

“To be named the clients’ favorite firm for eight consecutive years speaks for itself. With competition in the industry ever increasing, it is more important than ever for us to be attentive to our clients and work proactively to anticipate and meet their needs. Clients have become much more selective about who they choose to work with and we continually invest an enormous amount of time and resources to ensure our business evolves and that we’ll always be able to exceed their expectations – this award confirms that once again we have succeeded and are on the right path. Our success lies in the fact that we work with amazingly talented colleagues who – with hard work, passion and above all teamwork – always put our clients’ interests first and ensure we win their trust, year after year.”

The results of the survey were presented in connection with a conference and award ceremony held on 27 October. This is the eighth year that the client survey “Klientbarometern” has been conducted. The survey polls approximately 1,300 corporate lawyers, CEOs, CFOs and HR managers primarily at companies with annual turnover exceeding SEK 100 million. They are questioned about the criteria underlying their choice of firm and specific lawyer. The client survey “Klientbarometern” is conducted by BG Research, an independent research company within the Blendow Group.
