Meet some of our people

Cornelia Ekelund
Billling Manager

I received a master’s in business and economics from Lund University and began working as Billing Coordinator at the firm’s Malmö office just before Christmas 2014. In spring 2017 I moved to Stockholm, where I was able to continue working as Billing Coordinator, which was great. I now work as a Billing Manager, and also supervise our billing group. Much of our work involves reports and analyses of profitability and key figures, and our two main tasks each year are to prepare the budget for the following year, and naturally also to draw up the closing accounts. A typical day begins with a to-do list. By the time the day is over the list will have been revised several times over – but that’s what makes the job so interesting. Issues, large and small, pop up the whole time. One of the best things about the firm is the Pure Lockstep culture. No one wins by riding on the back of someone else, and this culture of sharing permeates the whole firm.

Mattias Hallgren
Process and System Delivery Manager

I joined Mannheimer Swartling in April 2019, having previously worked as an IT consultant and in the banking sector. My role was partially new, and I was given a big say in defining it. The work is very varied, which I appreciate. As head of systems I’m responsible for developing and maintaining solutions that meet our operational needs. I also work on processes and work flows to rationalise working methods and automate some parts of our work. There’s a broad span of digital solutions at the firm, and a widespread willingness to embrace them. The speed with which ideas at the firm are put into practice was amply demonstrated by the transition to working from home during the coronavirus pandemic. We swiftly developed digital solutions to replace physical meetings, which was greatly appreciated by the firm’s clients. We work with continuous improvement and I’m very pleased to be a part of that.


Mannheimer Swartling’s most important assets are its people. We are a large team with as wide a diversity of interests and motivations as there are opportunities to develop at the firm. Do you want to join us?
