I have worked for many years on Setterwalls’ tax team, helping Swedish and foreign companies with tax law issues.

My responsibility at the firm is to lead Setterwalls’ tax team. I have comprehensive experience of carrying out restructuring of both medium-sized and large companies, including those with international business. I have long experience of working with tax law suits, carrying out and planning generational shifts, and relocation and splitting up groups of companies. A large part of my work is linked to tax and corporate law considerations in conjunction with acquisitions and disposals. I also work with tax issues for specific sectors, such as companies carrying out construction work, securities operations and companies that are subject to energy taxes. Tax planning and legal issues linked to close companies form a major part of my work.
