Mannheimer Swartling’s goal is to be the go-to law firm in the premium business law segment of our market. This requires us to constantly adapt our service to anticipate and meet our clients’ evolving needs. Our highly skilled people in Sweden and overseas are the reason we accomplish this and remain a leader in all fields of business law.

With clients located all over the world, operating in many different industries, our advice covers virtually every area of business law. Though our operations are spread over a global market, our clients always meet a close-knit team. We make every effort to recruit, develop and retain our people, and we have built a long-standing corporate culture centred on collaboration. Our unique profit-sharing business model ensures that skills and experience are freely shared and circulated between our people and on to each client.

Our people drive our success.

Understanding our clients’ world – now and in the future

Our clients face ever more complex challenges and opportunities and naturally demand that we have the ability to foresee and adapt to changing circumstances ourselves. This requires us to be more than just a legal adviser – but also a strategic partner with a deep understanding of each client’s business and the evolving environment in which it operates. It is for this reason that we train our lawyers in far more than just “law”.

Business intelligence, sustainability and innovation

For a number of years now, we have employed a Senior Economist and a Head of Sustainability, who complement our practice with external analysis and strategy. Sustainability is very much an integral part of our organisation and of the services we provide. We have also established MSA Innovation Lab – the firm’s own business unit for innovation and digitisation.

Full-scale expertise

The service we provide our clients is both broad and specific. Broad because we handle all areas of business law and we advise businesses of all kinds, across all industries and sectors. Specific because our lawyers are highly specialised and genuine class leaders in their respective fields. This combination means we can swiftly mobilise a team of experts with the capacity to handle every aspect of even the most difficult sector-specific issues.

Jan Dernestam
Managing Partner

I hope our website gives you a feel for Mannheimer Swartling – not just what we do, but who we are.

Our goal has always been to be the very best law firm in our market – delivering services of the highest possible quality while being proactive and responsible to clients, colleagues and our society. We aim to be an adviser that contributes something more, one that not only meets expectations, but constantly exceeds them.

I joined Mannheimer Swartling more than 20 years ago, and these driving forces defined us even then. I can proudly say that they are just as strong today.
