Testimonials

‘Magnusson’s team has a lot of valuable experience in addressing legal real estate matters from both client as well as institutional side, as some of their team members have worked in government institutions of the field. I think this is the key reason why they are able to predict the dispute process, map out a 360 degree view on the situation and find alternative solutions even when the main or obvious one is not available or impossible to implement. On top of that, they react quickly, swiftly offering a strategy to tackle unexpected circumstances and keep the whole process under control.’
