With 100% focus on commitment and performance.

There are probably many firms that can give you the support that you need. However you should not settle merely for that. Any advisor worthy of the name is also perceptive and has extensive experience, is connected to influential networks and has the right people. But, above all, personal commitment is just as important as performance. The persistence to always do the very best equals the desire to build a relationship that lasts far longer than just reaching the negotiating table.

You always get access to the best team.

When we say "the best", we don't just mean leading-edge expertise in a particular field or experience of a specific industry. Personality is just as important as skills and experience. We are entrepreneurial by nature and value the experience of working together with our clients. Because when we all  feel like a natural parts of the best team, we are able to carry out the assignment in the most businesslike, efficient and smooth way.

Setterwalls is the oldest law firm in Sweden. Our history dates back to 1878, when lawyers Nils Setterwall and Oscar von Koch bought "Advokatföreningen, Juridisk Affärsbyrå" in Stockholm. Nils Setterwall was also one of the founders of the Swedish Bar Association in 1887.
