Mission 

Lindahl is a business law firm that finds solutions and helps each client reach their full potential by giving proactive and future-proof advice. We also are dedicated to offering the best possible work environment to develop talents and help colleagues reach their full potential. We achieve this by being straight-forward and clear, whilst maintaining focus on business value. Our ability to deliver all this distinguishes us on the market. 

Diversity 

Our ability to advance all aspects of diversity work is crucial to our talent supply, and therefore an important issue for our long-term and sustainable operations. We believe that engagement and gender equality are important for a good work environment. Lindahl has a clear principle that the assessment of all employees should be based on professional qualities and strictly on credit. Our work on gender equality is guided by developments in the field and proven experience. We want to develop all employees, regardless of gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or any other aspect that is irrelevant to our professional practice. To achieve this, we work for a fair delegation of duties and have a clear framework for how lawyers, regardless of gender or other personal aspects, should be enabled to advance to a leading position at the same rate. 

CSR & Pro Bono 

Lindahl is a committed and long-term member of society. Our most important contribution is to be part of creating efficient and innovative trade and industry, to the benefit of all. We contribute to Swedish commerce and voluntary organisations through the personal involvement of many of our co-workers in various national and regional initiatives. 

We provide resources to Star for LifeOur support helps give more than 1000 South African students at Siphosabadletshe High School in South Africa a better life and the inspiration to strive towards their life goals. Pupils also have access to coaches and outside of school there is a programme of home visits and a mobile facility for HIV testing. Together, these form important ingredients in giving vulnerable people a chance to take control of their lives and to realise their dreams. 

For the past decade, Lindahl has organised Sweden’s largest business law competition (Business Law Challenge) for law students from all over the country. The Business Law Challenge gives law students a unique chance to learn and better understand what it takes to become a good and valuable advisor for the future, making it an invaluable experience in their careers. 

For students, talents, colleagues and clients, we want to help everyone achieve their dreams and provide a platform from which they can all fulfil their full potential.
