Helping companies and entrepreneurs with their daily problems and resolving difficult situations is extremely stimulating. It is also fun meeting new people and getting to know different operations.

I focus mainly on Swedish and international construction projects, many in the energy sector, and I am regularly engaged to provide advice on commercial law matters.

It is valuable to be part of the decision-making process at clients, particularly where we have managed to build up a relationship based on mutual trust, where my clients feel that they can call me to kick ideas around. Consequently, personal contact with you, our clients, is extremely important, and not only for me. When we work towards a shared goal, it creates deeper understanding and thus better focus in the process.

My job at the firm is to be one of our experts in general commercial law, with the focus on commercial contract law, company law, business transfers, property law and disputes. I am regularly engaged to provide advice on commercial law matters and have wide experience of negotiating and drafting contracts in both Swedish and English.

Meeting many different people in a range of industries with different problems is a perk of the profession and is necessary for me to be able to do a good job. The essence of what I do is to analyse issues, scale down the less important elements and find the crux of the matter based on the law and your operations and with your assistance.

In my professional life, I have advised Swedish and foreign companies on general commercial law matters. In providing this advice, I have gained wide experience of drafting, reviewing and negotiating contracts in both Swedish and English. My role at Sigeman & Co covers a broad spectrum of commercial law, everything from complex, extensive contracts on partnerships, business transfers, etc. to regular advice on more minor matters. I have been working for many years in property and construction contract law and also have extensive experience as counsel in courts and arbitration proceedings.

I have been at Sigeman & Co since 1994, a member of the Swedish Bar Association since 1997 and a partner of the firm since 2001. I like to share my knowledge in other fora and am often engaged as a lecturer by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Southern Sweden.

As your lawyer, it is essential for me to totally understand your reality. Finding and arguing in favour of various solutions is what makes my work such an enjoyable challenge. I can really make a difference for you, our client, by being involved in processes when problems are formulated based on what you want to achieve.

My work at Sigeman & Co primarily concerns general commercial law, with a particular focus on public procurement — among other things, I am the co-author of JP Infonet’s comments on the Swedish Public Procurement Acts (2007:1091) and (2016:1145). I have extensive experience of working in both Swedish and English.

Since 2007 I have been working a great deal in the energy industry on everything from public procurement to construction contract law, property law and contracts for public law and EU law. I am also one of the firm’s representatives at Associated European Energy Consultants (AEEC).

I have been part of Sigeman & Co since 2007 and a member of the Swedish Bar Association since 2011.

Property law
Environment law

Countries are built on law. This old motto for how to organise a society feels important and relevant at a time when concepts such as morality and truth change according to the interests and agenda of the individual. I believe in the law as a tool to be used on both the macro and micro levels. The law gives us frameworks and firm rules for how to behave with each other and the world around us. It is a privilege to be able to work with the law and, as a lawyer, to contribute to our society.

My work as a lawyer has been based broadly on commercial law. I have gradually come to be more specialised in property law and environment law. Property law interested me early in my career on account of its clear rules and extensive case law. I have been working on a wide range of property law matters and disputes for nearly 30 years. In this time, I have acquired extensive experience, primarily in areas concerning permits and easements for utilities and other systems in the energy industry and supply sector in general. I may even have contributed to the development of the law to some extent.

Parallel to my property law work, I have gradually become more knowledgeable about environment law. I have also worked frequently as counsel in various permit matters and damages cases. During my years as a lawyer, environment law has been developing constantly. I like to make a difference on behalf of my clients. As a lawyer, you have great opportunities to do so in environment law as it is a relatively young legal field developing all the time.

It is instructive and stimulating with international repercussions and I am therefore active as the law firm’s representative in AEEC, Associated European Energy Consultants. I am a member of the Swedish Bar Association and was one of the founders of Sigeman & Co in 1991.

Commercial contract law
Infrastructure projects

I find it particularly stimulating to work on commercial projects in which I am involved from the initial stage. I am usually responsible for the preparation and drafting of the various contracts that need to be made during the project and I take part in the contractual negotiations. With my knowledge and many years of experience of the commercial contract process, I am able to help ensure that a project can be implemented as smoothly as possible for you, the client, with minimum problems.

At Sigeman & Co, I primarily work on central commercial law, with a particular focus on commercial contract law and infrastructure projects. In addition to responsibility for the parts of the process outlined above, my work also regularly involves providing advice on commercial law matters. I have worked on most types of contract that occur in the commercial law field and I have just over 30 years of experience of drafting and negotiating contracts in Swedish and English.

I have been a partner of the firm since its establishment in 1991 and a member of the Swedish Bar Association since 1990.
