Mannheimer Swartling most attractive law firm among university students for 14th consecutive year according to Universum’s FöretagsBarometern 2016 

For the 14th year in a row, Mannheimer Swartling has been ranked as the most attractive law firm to work for by law students in Sweden. The firm also bolstered its position outside the legal services category, securing third place among all employers, after Sweden’s Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the UN. Universum’s FöretagsBarometern (the Swedish Student Survey) is the largest annual survey conducted at all leading universities in Sweden.

“We are very proud that students have named us the most attractive employer among law firms for the 14th consecutive year. That they have once again placed us at the top of the podium is a confirmation that we are succeeding in our long-term approach to attract the brightest legal talents, ” says Jan Dernestam, Managing Partner at Mannheimer Swartling.

“The fact that we venture to take a long-term approach is one of many factors that contribute to our ability to attract Sweden’s most promising lawyers to Mannheimer Swartling,” he continues. “But above all, I think it is because students recognise the strengths of our corporate culture – where collaboration and knowledge sharing is encouraged, and where all employees have the feeling that they’re not only able to influence their own future, but the whole firm’s.”

FöretagsBarometern is a comprehensive survey of students’ views on careers, work environments and future trends. Over 24,000 students from Sweden’s universities participated in this year’s survey, which was conducted between September 2015 and January 2016. The results were presented in Stockholm on 17 March 2016.
