Mannheimer Swartling best law firm of the year in Sweden

Chambers and Partners named Mannheimer Swartling the “Best Swedish Firm of the Year” at its annual Chambers Europe Awards for Excellence ceremony held last night in London.

Managing Partner of the firm, Stefan Brocker stated, “it is an honour for Mannheimer Swartling to be recognized with an award that is based on “pre-eminence in key practice areas, notable achievements over the past year, outstanding work, impressive strategic growth and excellence in client service.” Indeed, this award is a tribute both to the quality of our teams and the trust we have gained from our clients to handle their most challenging matters.”

The Chambers Europe directory, which analyses Europe’s legal market, placed Mannheimer Swartling in the top position of the Swedish legal market and during the ceremony particularly noted the firm’s work for the Swedish government with regard to the take-over and subsequent sale of Carnegie Investment Bank and Max Matthiessen.

In addition to its European law firm directory, Chambers and Partners publishes an international directory, Chambers Global, in which Mannheimer Swartling earlier this year received highest rankings across all practice areas surveyed in Sweden: Arbitration, Banking & Finance, Capital Markets, Corporate/M&A and Dispute Resolution.

The UK-based Chambers and Partners publishes a series of guides to the legal profession and is recognized as a pioneer in the analysis of the international legal market.

In assessing the reputations and expertise of business lawyers across Europe, Chambers conducts interviews with clients.
