In focusAnnual Report 2015

For many years Mannheimer Swartling has been the leading business law firm in the Nordic region. In 2015 our position was confirmed as we were engaged in some of the year's biggest and most complex transactions and disputes within a wide range of industries, and by receiving new awards.

Last year marked 25 years since Mannheimer Swartling was established in its present form. The celebration of this milestone was typical for the firm – looking ahead at the future together with clients, employees and colleagues in the industry.

Our open-door policy in relation to one another and to the outside world has become recognised as a hallmark of the firm. This tradition of exchanging knowledge and ongoing dialogue with employees and clients has resulted in an environment that promotes quality, innovation and development. These are some of our main success factors, and the basis for the firm developing into the leading business law firm in the Nordic region.

On the surface, Mannheimer Swartling may appear to be a completely different firm today than the one that formed 25 years ago following the merger between Mannheimer & Zetterlöf and Carl Swartling Advokatbyrå. But the essence remains the same – our business model is based on team spirit, we take a long-term approach to our relationship with clients, and we always do our utmost to deliver superior quality.

This combination allows us to support our clients and to help them retain a longterm focus even when solving short-term crises. Our clients expect us to be highly responsive, to understand the challenges that they face, and to deliver high-quality advice.

One of our strongest driving forces is to meet and exceed these expectations. This will continue to be our goal over the years to come – every day and in every matter.

We invite you to read more about the firm's activities during the past year in our Annual Report for 2015.
