Magnus SteningerPartner, Member of the Swedish Bar Association
I am highly specialized within the field of real estate transactions and real estate projects.
I combine legal expertise, know-how in the real estate business and a great commersial sense to ensure that our clients’ interests are always considered and taken care of.
I primarily focus my practice on assisting domestic and international clients within real estate transactions, joint ventures, housing projects and real estate law in general. I have vast experience from complex transactions, co-owned projects and shareholder negotiations. Furthermore, I have assisted clients in some of the largest real estate projects that have been executed in Sweden during the last ten years.
Acting as lead counsel in cross border transactions and within the field of fund investments is one of my expert areas. I also advise clients on matters in relation to listings or de-listings of real property companies on the stock exchange.
Furthermore, I assist clients in land parcellings, negotiations regarding lease agreements, environmental matters, development agreements, property related disputes, usufruct and easement matters.
I act as advisory board member in proptech companies and have a good insight in the Swedish proptech market, having acted as legal counsel to the first Stockholm based proptech-hub.
