Key Lawyer

"Per Svärd. Must be the best in Sweden. He has been right (and won every case) every time – 100%. Besides, very nice to deal with. Understands the reality of his clients’ businesses."

2022

"'Can think of no one with a better reputation in Sweden. Always positive, always accessible, best of reputation. Knows just about everything there is to know, yet super humble and would always pull in a colleague if he thinks they know a subject better or have relevant experience. In addition a real nice person to be with. Not the reserved cliché of a lawyer.’"
