Malin Wikström

Partner, Member of the Swedish Bar Association

Profile

I have almost 20 years of working experience within the field of environmental law. I assist companies of all sizes as well as the State and municipalities in environmental law issues. As of 2020, I am, together with Linnea Ljung, head of the expert area environmental law at the Gothenburg office.

I regularly assist clients with permit applications regarding environmentally hazardous facilities and activities, and act as legal counsel in the Land and Environmental courts. Furthermore, I represent infrastructure facilities (such as ports and airports), development projects, waste facilities and major industries.

In my work I also assist in matters relating to environmental damages, environmental crime, work environment and issues relating to the supervision of environmentally hazardous activities.

I am also a reckognized lecturer and give lectures both in external contexts as well as for clients on a regular basis.
