Since 2003, I have been working with advice on environmental and energy law. The work covers everything from environmental permit processes in different industries to environmental and energy law in transactions. Since 2017, I head Setterwalls' environmental law team together with Anders Linnerborg.

My main area of expertise is environmental permit processes in all instances of the Swedish legal system and I am often hired as counsel. My competence in environmental and energy law is broad, including, inter alia, water rights, mineral rights and planning and construction issues. Different forms of environmental liability are also a central part of my consultancy. Moreover, environmental and energy law in commercial contract negotiations and transactions is a constantly growing segment. I often lecutre on current environmental and energy law issues at seminars in different industries.
