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.’

“… can cut a clear path through the thorniest of disputes and has been representing ATG, Sweden’s largest horse betting company, in several proceedings.”

“A perfect legal partner, Per Ericsson has a profound understanding of the law and always proposes different solutions as well as their potential consequences. He is clear in his advice and has a great understanding of the business world.”
