The firm

For more than half a century, Cederquist has grown together with its clients, never compromising the high standards of legal excellence, craftsmanship and business sense distinguishing its lawyers from the very beginning.

Founded in 1953 by the in-house lawyer of a major Swedish publishing house, Cederquist now engages approximately 100 of the top lawyers available on the Swedish market.

As the demands of the firm’s clients have changed and developed, so has Cederquist. Recently the firm has mainly focused on transactional and financing work and it is now regarded as among the best in the country within each of the firm’s practice areas.

Cederquist believes that the heart and soul of an outstanding law firm is legal excellence. All of the firm’s 100 lawyers combine being among the foremost experts within their respective area with an in-depth knowledge of the law in general. This means that not only can the firm provide advice of the highest available quality, but any of its lawyers will be able to identify all the relevant issues within each assignment and, if necessary, refer such issues to one of Cederquist’s experts within that particular area.

Since the firm has a lean organisation it always works closely with clients and can adapt its services based on their specific needs. Personal attention combined with keen business knowledge are key elements to understanding the needs of the client and ensures effective legal advice. It also makes working together more fun!

Areas of practice

To effectively accommodate the needs of its clients, all of the firm’s lawyers combine extensive legal knowledge with an in-depth expertise in specific areas. The firm’s specialists from different practice groups often work together. Many have practiced at law firms or companies outside Sweden. Cederquist can thus offer both its Swedish and international clients high quality, business-focused and cost-efficient advice. The firm’s areas of expertise consist of: M&A, PE, commercial real estate, finance, competition and public procurement, corporate recovery, dispute resolution, employment and benefits, financial market regulation, intellectual property, media and IT law, life sciences and corporate internal investigations.
