Testimonials

‘Personal service and dedicated employees.’

‘They make bets other firms don’t. Once they believe in you as a start-up, they give 100% in order to make your business successful. They care about your business, more than their own sometimes. Also, they’re great at not inventing the wheel twice.’

‘Eva Sundling and Tobhias Brandell are probably two of the most human-centric lawyers I’ve ever met. They were standing with me when I was a poor start-up founder, and took a bet on us that no one else would. Their wide range of knowledge from compliance, corporate governance, IP and fundraising is really unique.’

‘What makes them extremely good is not only their skilled lawyers but their ability to be familiar with the whole business and ability to come up with strategic advice. There is always a prestigious and good atmosphere when working with them. It feels like working at the same company towards the same goal.’

‘I have worked with Tobhias Brandell for 15 years and I believe that he is one of the best banking and finance lawyers out there. Incredibly competent, strategic and humble. He quickly becomes one of the team and looks after my company’s best interests. Can highly recommend him.’

‘The firm’s banking and finance practice is fantastic. They are very knowledgeable, they have a deep understanding of both legal and commercial aspects of complex transactions and they always provide accurate, correct and reliable advice within the stipulated time frames. As a client you always receive full partner attention during the entire transaction from start to finish.’

‘Tobhias Brandell is definitely one of the best banking and finance lawyers on the Scandinavian market. Tobhias always provides good, reliable and accurate advice on time. He has extensive experience and can provide both legal and commercial advice on very complex transactions. He thinks outside the box and comes up with creative solutions.’

‘We work a lot with Cecilia Rudels. She delivers high-level services and has good interpersonal skills. She delivers on time and when delegating you see that she maintains control over quality. The firm and Cecilia have worked a lot with our company and understand our needs and must haves.’

For more information, please visit www.tmpartners.se.

M&A
The practice is recognized for high quality work on M&A transactions of all types, acting for a broad number of Nordic and European private equity funds, state-owned companies and several large industrial corporates. The firm is also well known among the leading Swedish corporate finance firms and departments of audit firms for its work on sales mandates for entrepreneurs divesting their companies. The team continues to advise on some of Sweden’s and the region’s most demanding transactions and often acts as lead counsel in complex cross-border projects involving multiple jurisdictions in the Nordics and beyond.

Banking & Finance
TM & Partners advises Swedish and international companies, private equity funds, banks and other financial institutions on a broad spectrum of domestic and cross-border financing transactions, including debt capital markets deals. The team offers expertise in bilateral and syndicated lending, mezzanine debt financing, issuance of bonds, notes and other debt instruments, acquisition finance, real estate finance, asset and project finance, export and trade finance, structured finance and securitisations, sale and leaseback transactions, derivatives, venture capital lending, workouts and debt restructurings. The practice also advises on regulatory and compliance issues.

Capital Markets & Public M&A
The capital markets team oversees and manages all types of capital markets transactions, from stock exchange listings and public takeovers to capital raisings and restructurings. The team advises Swedish and international listed companies and other players such as private equity and venture capital funds, investment banks, investment funds and securities companies, and other stakeholders within the capital markets area.
