The Lawyer magazine announced that Mannheimer Swartling was named “Law Firm of the Year: Scandinavia & The Baltic States” at The Lawyer European Awards 2010 held in Berlin on 23 September 2010.

We are privileged to have such a strong platform of clients who entrust us with their most challenging matters and appreciate the nimbleness in our full service approach – this is what brings out the best of our abilities.” – Biörn Riese, Partner and Chairman of the Board.

In addition to Biörn Riese, Dr. Thomas Kaiser-Stockmann and Maria Wolleh from the firm’s Berlin office were in attendance at the awards ceremony hosted by the former US ambassador Sir Christopher Meyer.
