Practice areas

Emil Hedberg is clearly among the leading young capital markets lawyers in Sweden. Very experienced despite his young tenure and with a very pragmatic and market-oriented approach. While a newer entry to the upper echelons of the Stockholm capital markets arena, the legally strong, innovative and international approach clearly sets him apart from competitors at other firms.
