Johan joined Schjødt (previously Hamilton) in 1991 and has worked with bankruptcies and other insolvency matters since then. Thus, he experienced the flood of bankruptcies that swept over Sweden at that time. During this financial crisis, working with bankruptcies occupied most of his hours, and Johan was closing down real estate companies as well as industrial, trading and service businesses of various size and purpose. He has continued working with bankruptcies, reconstructions and liquidations to a great extent and have, after more than 30 years in the business, experience from hundreds of such matters.

Within the frame of working with bankruptcies and reconstructions he has developed a special knowledge in the field of State wage guarantee, and he is a member of the Swedish National Group for State Wage Guarantee. Johan has also been engaged with the Swedish Association for Insolvency Practitioners, Rekon, where he was a member of the board 2011-2018.

Since the mid-1990s, Johan has provided advise in employment matters and assisted clients in various kinds of negotiations as well as in court disputes. He does, however, not act before courts only in employment matters, but also in various kinds of other civil law disputes.

Throughout the years, he has been giving courses and lectures in the fields of insolvency and employment, both within the frame of Schjødt’s business as well as for professional course organizers.

Prior to joining Schjødt (previously Hamilton), he was a Law Clerk (Swedish Enforcement Office and District Court of Huddinge).

About Johan


  • 1988

    Master of Laws Degree (LL.M.), Stockholm University


    I’m very interested in (almost all kinds of) sports although not very sporty myself. I have however managed to complete the 300 km bike ride around the Lake Vättern (Vättenrundan) four times and a shorter version (Halvvättern, 150 km) a few other times. I am also a devoted, but not particularly successful, golf player.

    I have also been engaged within the sports club Södertälje Basketbollklubb, where I was board member 2008-2015 (president 2011-2015). Since 2012, I am also a board member in the club’s subsidiary Täljehallen AB (president 2013-2015).
