With 100% focus on commitment and performance.

Of course there are a many firms that can handle the tasks you need help with. But don't just settle for that. Any advisor worth the name is also responsive and has extensive experience, the right networks and the right staff. But, above all, personal commitment shines just as brightly as performance. The desire to always do our very best is just as strong as the desire to build relationships that last far longer than just the time spent at 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. The people you work with at our firm are entrepreneurial and are people you feel comfortable with, where working together is an experience. Because when we both feel like a natural part of the best team, we're in a position to carry out the assignment in the most businesslike, efficient and effective way.

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