Joacim Johannesson

Delägare, Advokat


Jag är ansvarig för Setterwalls FinTechgrupp och bistår primärt inom inhemska och gränsöverskridande FinTech-frågor.

Sedan mitten av 1990-talet bistår jag svenska och internationella klienter med rådgivning inom IP/Tech samt FinTech sektorn. Under mina år i Stockholm har jag skapat mig en bred kunskap och förståelse kring IP/Tech samt FinTech branschen.

Genom åren har jag lämnat rådgivning och stöd till internationella och svenska investerare, entreprenörer, start-ups samt såväl finansiella institutioner som teknikföretag som verkar inom ovan nämnda branscher. Utöver IP/Tech verksamhetsnära projekt såsom förhandla och driva avtalsförhandlingar kring stora komplexa avtal och processer kopplat till t.ex. IT-system, outsourcing, OEM, licenser och därmed förenliga tjänster har jag också stor erfarenhet att leda projekt inom företagsförvärv (och försäljningar), samgåenden och investeringar samt kapitalanskaffning.
