I am Head of Setterwalls FinTech Practice and primarily advise clients on a wide range of domestic and cross-border FinTech matters.
Since the mid-1990s, I have assisted Swedish and international clients with advice within the FinTech and IP/technology sectors.
During my years in Stockholm, I have acquired extensive knowledge and understanding of the IP/technology and FinTech sectors.
Over the years, I have advised international and Swedish investors, entrepreneurs, start-ups and established companies, i.e. financial institutions as well as tech companies, operating in the above sectors. In addition to projects operationally related to traditional IP/technology work, such as negotiating and managing contract negotiations for major, complex contracts and legal proceedings linked to areas such as IT systems, outsourcing, OEM, licences and associated services, I also have substantial experience of managing projects relating to company acquisitions (and disposals), mergers and investments and capital procurement.
