Group co-heads Johan Lindberg and Johan Gadd handle large property portfolio acquisitions and disposals on behalf of listed companies and private equity clients, and the recruitment of Helena Bjälkemo from an in-house role expanded the team’s expertise in commercial leasing negotiations, where it acts for major real estate owners.

Testimonials

‘Dedicated, hard-working and efficient team always available to guide us through the matter and provide clear, relevant, and business-oriented advice, and to manage and keep track of the various process workflows, helping us getting the deal through.’

‘Partner Eric Ödling is knowledgeable, dedicated, hard-working and accessible, participating from start to finish providing business-oriented and well-balanced advice based on his in-depth legal skill and competence, also very enjoyable and easy to work with.’

‘The AG team has a number of key items which make them a very valuable partner to us. First of all they have a diverse team in multiple respects which does not only grant us the exceptional competence we would expect from any practice, but the ability to approach challenges from different angles as well as being extremely easy to cooperate. Furthermore they offer us the “right balance” between being attentive to our requests and challenging us to re-evaluate some of our initial standpoints. In terms of collaboration and interfaces this is a practice that successfully have met us on the platforms we prefer and made it work.’

‘Eric Ödling, as our primary interface, stands out with his deep knowledge in the relevant area; selling traditional leases but packaged as a service which in our (Nordic) legal context is extremely difficult, on top of that the counterparties are almost exclusively large international companies with quite different views on key areas of the commercial/legal terms. The availability of the AG team together with their niche knowledge has been instrumental in our success on multiple large deals over the past few years.’

‘They are personal and practically oriented.’

‘Humble and cost efficient.’
