Mannheimer Swartling wins Chambers Europe ‘Best Swedish Firm of the Year’ award for second consecutive year

Mannheimer Swartling was named ‘Best Swedish Firm of the Year’ for the second consecutive year at the Chambers Europe Awards for Excellence ceremony held in Amsterdam on 10 May 2012.

The award is bestowed on the basis of research carried out for Chambers Europe 2012 and reflects a law firm’s pre-eminence in key practice areas and notable achievements over the past 12 months including outstanding work, impressive strategic growth and excellence in client service. Mannheimer Swartling has received this distinction three times since it was introduced five years ago – in 2009, 2011 and 2012.

“We are delighted that Mannheimer Swartling has been named ‘Best Swedish Firm of the Year’,” says Jan Dernestam, Managing Partner, Mannheimer Swartling. “We are fortunate to have earned our clients’ trust to handle their most challenging matters and we aim to exceed their expectations in every single assignment, to anticipate their needs – and to always deliver the highest quality. Winning this award two years in a row is an indication that we’re on the right track – and a reminder never to let up.”

In the 2012 edition of the Chambers Europe law firm directory, Mannheimer Swartling is ranked in all practice areas in Sweden, achieving the highest possible placement of ‘Band 1’ in twelve categories, and over 40 of the firm’s lawyers are ranked. Chambers and Partners also publishes an international directory, Chambers Global, in which Mannheimer Swartling received very high rankings earlier this year in these practice areas: Banking & Finance, Capital Markets, Corporate/M&A, Dispute Resolution, Intellectual Property and Restructuring/Insolvency.
