svenska engelska

I work and have a leading role in Setterwalls’ infrastructure and construction team.

Since the early 1990s, I have worked as an adviser to Swedish and foreign companies involved in Swedish and international building and construction projects (including PPP projects and OPS projects), and in transactions within the construction industry and manufacturing industry. I have also assisted in project financing within the areas in question. Major projects in which I have participated are Arlanda Express, the tunnel part of the Öresund Bridge link, Malmö City Tunnel, parts of the Northern Link Way and City Line in Stockholm, harbour construction in Stockholm and Göteborg, factory construction in Russia and Czechia, the Marieholm Tunnel in Göteborg, a natural gas plant in Lysekil, windpower plants in northern Sweden and mining projects in Russia and northern Sweden. Within the building and construction sector, I have also participated in the design of consortia as well as collaboration and partnering solutions. I have also assisted in disputes relating to construction and plant delivery, and acted as arbitrator in such disputes.
