Private Client

Since 2005, I have assisted Swedish and foreign companies and their owners with high-quality tax advice.

My responsibility at the firm is to lead Setterwalls’ tax team at the Stockholm office. In my day-to-day work, I help our clients with tax law advice, which tends to become ever more complicated due to legislation and regulations at both national and international level.  I also represent clients on an ongoing basis in tax cases and in applications for advance decisions on tax rulings.

Many of my assignments are international, and I therefore have detailed knowledge of the issues that arise for foreign clients on establishment and investment in Sweden, including cross-border restructuring. As part of a specialist team, I also work closely with our other operational teams, and provide them with ongoing support and advice in conjunction with company acquisitions, disposals and stock market introductions, etc.
