‘A big team of lawyers only focusing on IT law is unique and hence there will be an experienced team looking into your IT law issue – this is excellent. Strong willingness to deliver modern advice and always on time.’

‘The team has unique expertise in the area. They are responsive and always balancing risks vs business value. They stand firm on what they believe is important but at the same time are creative in finding practical solutions.’

‘Johan Kahn and Daniel Lundqvist stand out. The are available and responsive and extremely competent in the area and always find solutions on issues at hand without waiving legal requirements. They always act very professionally and pedagogically.’

‘I consider Kahn Pedersen as the leading firm for data protection matters in Sweden (and also for IT). Since the advent of the GDPR, a number of law firms and other consultants of all sorts are claiming to be experts in the data protection field. However, only a few firms are actually solid and can add something to our internal expertise and that is why we choose to work with Kahn Pedersen and no one else. Several of the leading Swedish data protection lawyers are found in Kahn Pedersen.’

‘We have worked with Johan Kahn for a long time and consider him without doubt the number one lawyer for data protection and IT in Sweden.’

‘Daniel Lundqvist should be recognised as one of the foremost data protection and IT lawyers in his generation. We specifically appreciate his great legal skills together with his commercial understanding.’

‘Martin Brinnen is arguably the leading data protection lawyer in private practice in Sweden.’

‘Staffan Malmgren is unique with his solid technical knowledge and deep legal proficiency within the data protection field.’

Practice head(s):

Kristian Pedersen; Erik Olsson

Other key lawyers:

Olle Lindberg


‘Pro-active and modern solutions within a field of law that is generally seen as quite ‘static’. We truly appreciate their innovative angle to complex legal issues.’

‘Kristian Pedersen is calmly presenting complex problems in a “simple” way with words that business people can also understand. Focus is not on long memos but rather on the usefulness of the advice – that is outstanding.’

‘Very high customer service! Young and modern approach. Always available and fast response. Extremely high delivery.’

‘KP’s approach to the client differs from other law firms in several ways, which I believe is contributing to the better quality of their deliveries and which definitely makes the end result more useful to me as client: 1. KP appears to have a genuine interest in the client’s business, and manages to apply the knowledge they collect in this respect to their deliveries. 2. KP think out of the box when it comes to the end product. By considering alternatives and being interested in making the end result useful for me as client, I get additional value.’

‘Kristian Pedersen is skilled, has the ability to adapt the deliveries to the client’s scope and is great to retain both for ordinary law firm assignments and when you seek advice from a business partner with legal skills. This is a rare combination.’

‘Excellent adviser in public procurement, can often provide practical and professional advice adapted to our business quickly.’

‘Kristian Pedersen is the best public procurement adviser we have encountered. Accessible, with great knowledge who offers practical solutions to complex problems. Not afraid to advise against appeals if the case has low merit, even if this means less work in that particular case for the firm.’

‘The team at Kahn Pedersen has an unsurpassed ability to handle public procurement law. They apply creative thinking and can find new ways of handling cases.’

‘I would like to mention Erik Olsson for his dedication and grate knowledge in public procurement law. He can always see a case from another angle and thus be successful.’
