Strong performance in 2008

“In challenging market conditions, Mannheimer Swartling’s full service offering and true partnership business model performs strongly and provides clients with highest possible added value.” – Stefan Brocker, Managing Partner

Mannheimer Swartling extended its lead as the largest law firm in the Nordic region and continued to receive instructions on Sweden’s most prominent and complex matters. The firm’s position on the market was confirmed by rankings in the league tables and awards institutes, and for the seventh year in a row, Mannheimer Swartling was selected as the law firm of choice by Swedish law graduates.

Turnover in 2008 grew by 13% to SEK 1.2 billion, with year-on-year growth reported in all practice areas and regions.

Mannheimer Swartling is a full service firm with over 650 employees and operates as Sweden’s only true lockstep partnership. The firm is based in Sweden, but with offices in Germany, Russia, China, Belgium, and the United States, Mannheimer Swartling is the most “international” of the Nordic firms. This presence – combined with very close ties to an extensive network of the leading firms in other countries – guarantees that Mannheimer Swartling has the scope and scale needed to meet the requirements of its most demanding clients.
