Gothenburg‑based Anna Palmérus and co‑head Björn Nicolai have expertise at the cross section of competition and insolvency law, while co‑head Pär Remnelid leads on merger control work and regulatory operations in Malmö. The firm is well placed to represent clients before the EU courts thanks to Martin Johansson’s Brussels‑based practice.
