I have been a part of the Transport Law group since 2019. Before I joined Setterwalls I worked as a marine complex claims handler within the insurance industry for several years.

I work with all transport related legal issues, from the practical law surrounding conveyance of goods to finding the best insurance solution for a specific type of delivery, assessment of liability for damage or loss of goods and recovery actions.

Setterwalls’ insurance practice covers the breadth of contentious and non-contentious issues for Swedish and international insurers, reinsurers and P&I clubs; the latter engage practice head Åke Fors and associate Samuel Pihl on maritime insurance matters. The group also handles claims and coverage litigation alongside regulatory matters, insurance-related M&A transactions and portfolio transfers; it also has notable strength in pension insurance work including advising on ultra-high-value governmental pension programmes. Johannes Ericson is the key contact for insurance disputes.
