Sweden: Swede success
Stockholm's legal market has long been dominated by the major Swedish firms, such as Mannheimer Swartling and Vinge, and international firms including Linklaters, White & Case, DLA Piper (DLA Nordic), Baker & McKenzie and Eversheds. However, three years ago top Finnish firm Roschier launched a Stockholm office, while in September its Helsinki-based rival Hannes Snellman announced it was planning to do the same.Hannes Snellman's imminent launch in the Swedish capital has been met with much interest, not least because the firm's entry comes with five big-name lateral hires. New office head Fredrik von Baumgarten, an M&A specialist, arrives from Vinge, one of Sweden's top firms, while capital markets partners Soeren Lindstroem, Richard Aakerman and Jan Jensen have been recruited from 150-lawyer Swedish firm Setterwalls. Linklaters' Stockholm head of litigation Martin Wallin, who had initially announced he was going to join Setterwalls, has been persuaded to follow them.
