Hammarskiöld & Co represented the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority

November 2010

Hammarskiöld & Co has represented the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Finansinspektionen) before the Administrative Court in Stockholm in an appeal made against the decision of Finansinspektionen to i.a. restrict the right to be a "qualified" owner of a Swedish stock exchange.

The ruling was in favour of Finansinspektionen and the Court dismissed the appeal in its entirety. The judgement contains several important statements regarding the legal requirements on owners with a qualified holding in a stock exchange and also on the issue of evidence and burden of proof.

Finansinspektionen was represented by Jacob Melander (Partner) and Christina Blomkvist (Senior Associate).
