Mannheimer Swartling has in-depth knowledge of the sector and long experience of advising on shipping and transportation law in its very widest sense.

The firm provides legal advice to Swedish and international companies, organisations, government agencies and local authorities. Our expertise includes contract drafting and contract negotiations, acquisitions and financing of all kinds, guarantees and insurance issues, litigation and arbitration in Sweden and abroad.

A multifaceted view of the challenges facing our clients

Many transactions in the shipping and transportation sector involve issues touching on other areas of law. Our role is to assist our clients when important financial decisions are taken, and where legally correct documentation is required. Our size and experience of working in multi-office and multi-practice area teams enable us to offer our clients advice in all areas that may impact the decisions they take from a wider perspective.

International network

We currently have about ten lawyers working in this field. Most of them are based at the firm’s Gothenburg office, but our expertise in this area extends to all our offices. Our experience in shipping and transportation has given us an extensive network of major international law firms specialising in this sector.
