Lawyer Rankings

Sweden > EU and competition

Setterwalls is highly active in the merger control space, where it advises clients on complex transactions in highly regulated sectors such as the pharmaceuticals industry. In the contentious space, the team handles investigations and follow-on claims. Erik Gadman joined the firm from Gernandt & Danielsson Advokatbyrå in 2022 and now leads the team following the departure of Ulf Djurberg. The practice provides strategic competition law advice to clients, reviewing their operations and commercial agreements to ensure compliance with regulations; Bo Berndtsson focuses on this area. Martin Levinsohn is also noted for his work on merger control issues, while senior associate Angelica Ström is praised by clients, and Rolf Larsson, who joined from Gernandt & Danielsson Advokatbyrå in 2022 along with Gadman, also heads up the group.
