I am a partner at Bird & Bird in Sweden and I co-head our Nordic Tech & Comms group. I also lead our Tech & Comms and Transactions groups in Sweden. I speak fluent Swedish, English and French.

With more than 20 years' experience in public and private M&A, capital markets, financing and joint ventures, my client base is both local and international. I bring experience and versatility to all aspects of my work, and have a long track record of success in the field of transaction advice. Beyond the transactional work, I enjoy building strong and lasting client relationships, and I am often involved as a senior adviser in more complex matters of regulatory law (including in particular payments regulation, for example PSD2) and commercial arrangements.

Today, my industry and sector experience spans a wide range of businesses in tech, communications, media and payments. My clients range from entrepreneurs and private equity-owned companies, to businesses with strategic challenges, where, as well as offering transaction advice, I have become a trusted senior adviser to owners, directors and managers.
