Joacim Johannesson

Partner, Member of the Swedish Bar Association / Stockholm


svenska engelska

Since the mid-1990s, I have assisted Swedish and international companies with advice within the IP/technology and FINTECH sectors.

During my years in Stockholm, I have acquired extensive knowledge and understanding of the IP/technology and FINTECH sectors.

Over the years, I have advised international and Swedish investors, entrepreneurs, start-ups and established companies operating in the above sectors.
In addition to projects operationally related to IP/technology, such as negotiating and managing contract negotiations for major, complex contracts and legal proceedings linked to areas such as IT systems, outsourcing, OEM, licences and associated services, I also have substantial experience of managing projects relating to company acquisitions (and disposals), mergers and investments and capital procurement.
