In addition to his role as Managing Partner, Safa will continue his business in the firm’s real estate practice.
“It is with a great enthusiasm I take over the role of Managing Partner. Under Kristoffer’s leadership, we have made a remarkable transition from a boutique firm with thirty employees “who punch above our weight” to a large firm with close to eighty employees who assist our clients with their most complex transactions.”, Safa says.
Safa continues: “We face new opportunities and challenges and I look forward to leading the changes that today’s society and in particular the development in AI require. An innovative approach is required. In addition to being experts with specialist knowledge, our clients increasingly demand strategic and more holistic advice. We are not only expected to possess the necessary legal expertise and offer high availability, but also to be the trusted advisors who act as a sounding board and a business partner in a broader sense. This requires a clear and intentional business acumen, commitment at all levels and a curiosity of the world around us. In this context, the team at TM & Partners will always strive for excellence.”
Kristoffer Stråth comments: ”Safa will without doubt be a perfect successor as the new Managing Partner. He stands for the firm’s most important core values and has a business drive that is unique! I know that he is absolutely the right person to continue leading the firm’s work with the ambition to realize the incredible power and potential we have in the house – for the benefit of the firm and our clients. I am extremely honoured to have been entrusted with the role of MP since 2018. I will now focus on leading and developing the firm’s dispute resolution team. I see great opportunities for continued growth and to build on the increasingly exciting and challenging assignments we receive. I also look forward to devoting myself fully to client work again.”
