Linnea Ljung

Partner, Member of the Swedish Bar Association


I have assisted Swedish and international companies in matters relating to energy and environmental law since 2008. Since 2018, I am head of the expert area environmental law at the Gothenburg office.

In my daily work, I identify and manage environmental risks in companies’ ongoing business or in connection with transactions, construction works and property development. I assist clients in connection with permit applications and notifications under Swedish environmental law and other contacts with environmental authorities.

Moreover, I regularly represent companies in matters concerning water, mining, waste and by-products, energy, infrastructure, habitats and species protection and matters relating to electricity legislation.

One of my areas of special expertise is environmental damages and other damages to surrounding areas, such as liability for contaminated areas, serious environmental damages and third party claims. These are often key issues in development of and transactions concerning industries and properties. The environmental issues often has a particular impact on time and costs when converting industrially affected land areas into residential areas or other, more sensitive land use.

I often have the privilege to educate on environmental law and I am frequently retained as speaker in different industry forums and universities. I also regularly hold tailor-made courses in various environmental law issues for the firm’s clients.
