Kristoffer Stråth and his team are willing to commit. They show real responsibility and in-depth knowledge. Kristoffer is not afraid of reaching out to other members with special knowledge of the industry.

Viktor Magnell is a great lawyer. Never misses a detail but at the same time sees the whole picture and builds strategies which work well.
