Sweden’s economy is in excellent shape overall, as measured by positive trends in inbound and outbound direct investments, industrial production output and domestic household expenditure.

Sweden’s reputation as an economic powerhouse is underscored by its openness to entrepreneurship and innovation. It is among the most attractive locations in Europe for foreign-owned enterprises, which are drawn to its business friendly environment. The manufacturing industry, which accounts for more than 27% of the country’s GDP, is seeing major developments in automation, underlining the country’s credentials in IT and technology. With its diversified markets and few barriers to entry, backed by a highly educated workforce, Sweden is seen as the top location in the Nordic region for overseas-based companies looking to establish operations; more than 1,300 US companies, for example, are present there.

In 2016 the Swedish legal market saw DLA Piper expand significantly by merging with Grönberg AdvokatbyrĂ„. GĂ€rde Wesslau merged with Hökerberg & Söderqvist to form Wesslau Söderqvist AdvokatbyrĂ„ and in another development, GĂ€rde Wesslau’s former Gothenburg office separated to become Front Advokater. Although 2017 was a quieter year for consolidations, Werks Advokater AB was founded by several former partners from Advokatfirman Vinge.
