Jonas FriiSetterwalls

The ‘fantastic’ team at Setterwalls provides ‘razor-sharp legal advice with ease’, leveraging its ‘deep industry experience in relation to all aspects of renewable energy projects’, particularly wind energy matters including permitting work and environmental issues. Beyond wind, the group also has experience in biofuel, battery storage, district heating, nuclear, solar and hydroelectricity mandates. In Malmö, transactional specialist Jonas Frii and environmental expert Tove Andersson lead the practice alongside Martin Sandgren in Stockholm, who is a key contact for international energy and infrastructure projects.

Sweden > Banking and finance

Setterwalls‘ deep banking and finance bench houses expert practitioners across the entire range of disciplines. Dominant financial institutions including all major Nordic banks instruct co-head Mikael Magnusson, Carl Lindencrona handles a range of debt financing transactions, and co-head Jesper Kuschel leads on high-value real estate transactions for lenders and borrowers. Showcasing his industry reputation, Åke Fors is retained by major government bodies including the Swedish Central Bank to advise on export credit and multilateral lending issues. The regulatory practice, which fields counsel Andreas Löfholm, was strengthened by the recruitment of specialist counsel Tobias Björklund from the Swedish FSA. Jonas Frii also contributes to the practice.
