InterviewJacob Rosell Svensson

Jacob Rosell Svensson, Associate in the Dispute Resolution group

When I started studying law in Lund, I had no idea neither what business law was nor did I know anything about any other areas of law, for that matter, and I had not heard of Mannheimer Swartling. During my time as a student I was interested in all parts of the law programme, and naturally also enjoyed student life in Lund. What attracted me to business law was the variety, challenges and the role as adviser.

During my time as a student I was interested in all parts of the law programme, and naturally also enjoyed student life in Lund. What attracted me to business law was the variety, challenges and the role as adviser. Mannheimer Swartling was definitely my first choice, mainly because of its pure lockstep culture and sense of community.

Apart from developing your legal skills, you learn something new about different sectors every day.

Ever since that first term in Lund I have thought that the appeal of law lies primarily in solving problems and reasoned argument. These aspects form the core of work in the Dispute Resolution group. Each day I get to ponder legal problems and hone new and better arguments. But the best things about working in the Dispute Resolution group are definitely the great atmosphere, helpful colleagues and the fact that there is always someone to turn to when you get stuck on a question.

During my three years at the firm I have worked on a huge range of cases, involving everything from major IT and infrastructure projects to sports events and computer games. Apart from developing your legal skills, you learn something new about different sectors every day. I have also chosen to become involved in recruitment, and therefore take part in various events for students, such as the Swedish Legal Championships, lectures and other arrangements. The firm encourages in-house work, which makes the job even more fun.
